Eyes on Pola Negri & Accuracy
6 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seeing this film, Pola Negri is a definite feast for my eyes as she fills the screen with a fine performance. I viewed this recently with a live audience and one of our elder viewers was from Eastern Europe. His comments resonate on the qualities in this film.

"The World War 1 uniforms were very accurate in the film, and it is the first time I have ever seen a film which portrayed the Eastern Europe government in a positive light politically. This film stunned me in the political accuracy of that portrayal." This speaks reams for this film. Not only is Pola Negri super, but a person who lived in Eastern Europe applauds the excellent film making involved.

This is one of a very small handful of films made about this front in World War 1. The history is just as important as Pola Negri's performance.
