1983: A Successful Production
One of Netflix’s most successful productions is a disturbing miniseries that will keep you on your toes all the time. We are talking about 1983, which comprises only 8 episodes.
“In 1983, a devastating terrorist attack took place that paralyzed the liberation process of Poland and the fall of the Soviet Union. 20 years later, a law student and a policeman discover a conspiracy that has kept the iron curtain up, and Poland living under police repression”, indicates the synopsis of this Netflix production.
This series is of Polish origin and is directed by Joshua Long, Agnieszka Holland, Kasia Adamik, Olga Chajdas, Agnieszka Smoczynska and the script is in charge of Joshua Long, its creator.
The Diplomat: A Historical Plot
This Netflix Production will catch you chapter by chapter, as its story is based on a historical plot, in the middle of the crossfire. Although the story at one point opens many doors that it does not close, it is exciting until the end.
The cast is made up of Maciej Musial, Robert Wieckiewicz, Michalina Olszanska, Zofia Wichlacz, Andrzej Chyra, Ewa Blaszczyk, Edyta Olszówka and Agnieszka Zulewska, among others.
1983: The Dystopian Reality
The series has a historical context, and George Orwell’s novel 1984 are closely related because both narrate dystopian realities, and there are many parallels in the design of society.
It is worth clarifying that the 1983 plot takes place in the year 2003, 20 years after the terrorist attacks that in 1982 paralyzed the liberation process of this hypothetical Poland. Subversion and “the Party” are names that will resonate throughout its eight chapters to continue evoking the great work of literary dystopia to which it pays its particular tribute.
