Polish cinema is one of the most developed in Eastern Europe. Many Polish films are widely known outside of Poland, for example, “Pharaoh” (1966), “Flood” (1974), “Witch Doctor” (1982), “Fire and Sword” (1999), “Kamo Gryadyesh” (2001). In Poland, earlier than in the USSR / Russia, M. Bulgakov’s novel “The Master and Margarita” was filmed. Polish directors Roman Polanski, Krzysztof Keslowski, Agnieszka Holland, Andrzej Wajda, Jerzy Kavalerovich, Andrzej Zulawski, Krzysztof Zanussi made a great contribution to the development of world cinema.
In this rating, the most beautiful, in my opinion, actresses of Polish cinema of the 20th and 21st centuries will be presented.
Note regarding the spelling of the names of actresses: in Polish, most female surnames have the ending “a”, while in Russian women’s Polish surnames are usually spelled with the ending “ay”, for example, the Polish surname Skłodowska is traditionally written in Russian as Skłodowska.
