Landscape after Battle
- Tuesday, November 15, 2011 7:00 p.m.
The film is a powerful love story between a young poet, Tadeusz, and a headstrong girl, Nina, during the chaotic liberation of the German concentration camps. As the camps are opened, the two are herded into other camps as the Allies try to devise a policy to control the situation. Tadeusz cannot quite find himself in this new situation, while Nina is desperate to run off to the West. He cannot cope with her growing demands for affection, while still harboring the hatred for the Germans and disdain for his fellow men who quickly revert to petty concerns.
