Master director Jerzy Kawalerowicz (Quo Vadis; Mother Joan of the Angels), who along with Andrzej Wajda, helped define the legendary Polish School of the 1950s and 1960s, offers a melancholy meditation on the impact of WWII and the Holocaust. Roza and Juliusz, a talented young architect, marry just before the outbreak of war. When Juliusz is deported to a concentration camp, Roza fears the worst. Convinced he will never return, she falls in love with another man and starts a new life. After the war, Juliusz returns from the camp physically drained and emotionally disturbed by the torments he has suffered. Reluctantly, Roza tries to care for him, but her life has changed, and his scars are too deep. Real End of the Great War explores the emotional and spiritual impact of WWII, revealing that merely surviving the war was not enough.
