A classical picture of the Polish Film School which scathingly criticises national myths of war heroism and military honour. Is it better to die in a fight already lost, or to survive? Apart from Wajda's Canal, Eroica is the most important film voice in the discussion on war experiences in Poland in the 1950s.
