A world turned upside down, where everyone has first-hand acquaintance with death-this is the setting of Andrzej Wajda's Ashes and Diamonds, a chilling account of post-World War II Poland. A dedicated partisan unexpectedly encounters the end of the war-but no subsequent end of killing. With dynamic acting and stark, haunting imagery, Ashes and Diamonds is a film of unforgettable power.

With improved subtitles and a new digital transfer in the aspect ratio of 1.85:1, Criterion's edition invites new appreciation of this classic film.
