Directed by perhaps the most prolific of Polish directors from a story that is surpassingly personal, Andrzej Wajda opens Katyn, his depiction of the events surrounding the 1940 massacre of 20,000 Polish officers and intellectuals by the Bolsheviks and the ensuing cover-up, with a moment of startling consternation. A mass of huddled Polish citizens crosses a bridge, fleeing the closing grip of the Wehrmacht, only to be met with fellow countrymen running in panic from the Red Army, which is advancing in the opposite direction.
