Languages of publication
The article is a comparative analysis of Wojtek Smarzowski’s Rose (Roza) and Wojciech J. Has’ How to be loved (Jak być kochaną), films that are connected in their theme of sexual violence in the context of the Second World War. Taking into the account the historical context within which the films were made, and the post-war trauma, the author points to the changes that took place over the last fifty years in the language of film and ways of presenting violence (in particular, war rape of women). In addition the author also considers the image of a soldier of the Polish Home Army (Armia Krajowa) in both films, the role and the way the female protagonist is constructed, and her place in the presented world.
