Directed by Andrzej Wajda
Based on a classic novel by
Stefan Zeromski, Andrzej Wajda's wartime epic concerns a Polish legion
that fights under the flag of Napoleon, hoping to secure the freedom of
their divided country. Stunningly shot in CinemaScope with impressive
battle scenes, this was among the most expensive Polish productions of its
time. An ambitious project, in both scope and theme, from one of the
country's leading directors. Polish with English subtitles.
