It is supposed to return an export table.) is a 1970 drama film directed by Andrzej Wajda and starring Daniel Olbrychski; telling a story of a Nazi German concentration camp survivor soon after liberation, residing in a DP camp somewhere in Germany. It is based on the writings of Holocaust survivor and Polish author Tadeusz Borowski.[1] In most part, the plot revolves around the events depicted in Borowski's short story called "Bitwa pod Grunwaldem" ("The Battle of Grunwald")[2] from his collection This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen. The film was entered into the 1970 Cannes Film Festival.[3]

Plot[edit]

The Landscape After the Battle film tells a story of two young concentration camp survivors. A young Polish poet (Tadeusz) is asked by a pretty Jewish girl (Nina) to go with her to the West. His camp experience, however, prevents him from realizing the depth of her love for him, and he is reluctant to commit. The woman is accidentally shot dead by an American soldier, causing the poet to cry for the first time in years. The shock of her death brings back the world of feelings suppressed by his Nazi captors, and allows for his original creativity to reemerge.[1]
