Andrzej Wajda

The Revenge (Polish: Zemsta), a film released in 2002, directed by Andrzej Wajda (pictured). The film is based on a perennially popular stage farce by the great Polish playwright and poet Aleksander Fredro. Written in a sharp, ironic style, 'The Revenge' portrays those national characteristics that in time brought on many of Poland's national tragedies. Written for the stage, Wajda has changed very little and transferred practically the entirety of the work to the screen.

Cast: Roman Polański as Papkin, Janusz Gajos as Cześnik Raptusiewicz, Andrzej Seweryn as Rejent Milczek, Katarzyna Figura as Podstolina, Daniel Olbrychski as Dyndalski.
