Moscow Military District troops,

parade in front of party leaders

and members of government.

IN 1980, FOLLOWING SEVERAL ATTEMPTS

AT RESISTANCE, POLES CREATED "SOLIDARITY",

A 10-MILLIONS-STRONG OPPOSITION MOVEMEN HEADED BY LECH WALESA

WALESA:

MAN OF HOPE:

WRITTEN BY:

- We have company again.

- That's possible.

Can they stop us?

The most famous journalist

from the West?

They're here for our safety.

It seems to me that this interview

could be very inconvenient for them.

Boys, clear up your toys.

Go wash your hands.

Slawek, take this away.

I'll check your hands, all right?

- A white shin.

- No. I didn't want this interview.

Bogdan, take this.

Wear a tie at least.

No! I'm not going to suffocate

for that brazen hag.

This is the home of the man

who leads a 10-million-member union?

He was recently given this place

by the authorities.

He accepted an apartment

from the authorities he's opposing?

Six kids and no money to live on.

Solidarity' didn't protest.

Are you sure?

What is he like?

He's full of contradictions.

And surprises.

I'm Oriana Fallaci.

It is a cold afternoon in Gdansk,

blanketed with snow and anxiety.

Wait, wait, wait.

Before we begin, we need to

agree on a few things.

I'm a simple worker,

but I don't feel inferior...

Not inferior to generals,

to prime ministers or to you.

So let me ask the first question:

Will this interview help me or hurt me?

Listen, Mr. Walesa.

I can't tell you if you will

benefit from this or not.

It really depends on what you say.

And I'm the one asking questions.

Let's begin.

7 months ago, hardly anybody

knew your name abroad or in Poland.

Today you're one of the most famous

people in the world.

When you're in Italy, you're welcomed

like a head of state. A movie star...

Stop, stop, stop, stop.

Why?

You have an authoritarian,

dictatorial style.

I do, too. So now we have a problem.

Let's try this:
I'll be nice to you

and you'll be nice to me.

Otherwise, we'll tear

each other to pieces.

We've talked once before. Why again?

Because I need to make sure

I've understood you correctly.

Brezhnev was clear on one thing: in Poland,

enemies of socialism are carrying out

counterrevolutionary activities.

And the Soviet Union will never

abandon its communist Polish allies.

This is only barking

meant to scare people off.

Aren't you afraid of responsibility

towards your country and history?

- No, no, no...

- Or that you're not the right person?

I am a man of faith and I know

that the times call for someone like me.

DECEMBER 1970

DECEMBER 1970 12 December 1970 the

Council of Ministers has approved

an increase in prices of consumer goods.

The prices of meat preserves

are rising by 17.6%.

Wheat and rye flour by 16%.

Milk - 8%.

Jam and marmalade - 36.8%.

Roasted grain coffee - 92.1%.

Cream of wheat - 23%.

I made it, I'm here!

Go now, Mr. Walesa!

Thank God you've taken a day off.

Go, go!

I'll wipe Danuta's feet myself.

Put on something warm.

It's freezing.

Lech!

Where's your scan'?

- I'll do it.

- No, you shouldn't bend over.

Your hair must be done. Don't want you

looking like this in the delivery room.

Eyebrows, too. Do you like them thick

or do you prefer a 'surprised' look?

And I'll throw in a perm for free.

Right. How on earth

am I going to pay for Christmas? Eh?

Meat and sugar prices are up by 30%.
