Movie Info

Agnieszka, a welder, is a loyal and dedicated worker and a perennial "Heroine of Labor." Taunted by her peers for being such a paragon of virtue, she nonetheless advocates tirelessly for workers' rights without much reward. Living alone with her teenaged son, she spends her days on endless, repetitive tasks, but a glimmer of joy arrives when a happy-go-lucky, trumpet-playing newcomer takes an apartment in her block and the two start a relationship.

Critic Reviews for Strike (Strajk - Die Heldin von Danzig)

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (9)

An inspiring tale of a small woman who stands tall in the face of injustice.

June 28, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's all a lot closer to melodrama than drama, but Thalbach is a dynamo.

June 28, 2007 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Rough-hewn and modest, stirring but rarely grandiose. This seems fitting, since part of what made Solidarity so inspiring was its gritty, determined refusal of ideological grandstanding or political melodrama.

June 15, 2007 | Rating: 4.5/5

The script plays fast and loose with the facts and adds soap-operaish touches, but [Katharina] Thalbach is a feisty delight. Strike is no Tin Drum, but her performance makes the melodrama worthwhile.

June 15, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It has a pumping dynamism that keeps you with it.

This is Iron Curtain porn at its most shameless -- a rousing industrial rock song plays in the background every time [director] Schlöndorff wants to invoke the Spirit of Labor -- but [actress] Thalbach's Agnieszka is irresistible.
