Survey finds Katyn considered best Polish film ever

Even though Andrzej Wajda's Katyń did not win an Oscar, a new survey shows Poles think that it's the best Polish film of all time.
The survey in the Polska daily found 55.5% of Poles believe that Katyń is
the best Polish film in history. Second on all-time popularity was the
epic masterpiece The Teutonic Knights (20.9%) and The Deluge (20.4%), both
based on Henryk Sienkiewicz's novels.

Another 67.5% of those surveyed named Wajda as best Polish director,
followed by Roman Polanski and Krzysztof Kieslowski, Polska reported.

After the Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, Wajda was asked whether
he was sad he didn't get an Oscar. "What?!" he replied. "It's my fourth
nomination (He was previously nominated for The Promised Land (1976), The
Maids of Wilko (1979) and Man of Iron (1982)."
"I am glad we have been noticed," he added. "Europe has noticed us."
