Storyline

Cossack chief Taras Bulba, aiming to conquer neighboring Poland and her Tartar allies, sends his sons Ostap and Andrei to study in the Polish city Dubno to learn more about Polish customs and strengths. Andrei, however, falls in love with the Polish governor's daughter Natalia. When the Cossacks march on Dubno, Andrei is imprisoned, but escapes back to his father. Taras Bulba dictates peace terms to the Poles, which include taking Natalia as hostage. Although Natalia agrees, Andrei rebels against his father and takes the girl back to the city. In the ensuing battle, both Andrei and Natalia are killed, but the two fathers declare peace. Written by Jim Marshall

Trivia

Same title, plot and release date as its famous Hollywood namesake Taras Bulba (1962), but no stars or budget. Inevitably, totally eclipsed at the box office. See more »

Great cossack film
20 November 2004 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on TV in 1979 under the title Plains of Battle dubbed into English. It was distributed by Universal at that time. In my opinion, it is a superior film to Hollywoods 1962 treatment of Taras Bulba except that the Taras Bulba in Il cosacco seemed a bit old. Yul Brynner was a more dynamic Taras Bulba in the Hollywood treatment than Vladimir Medar in Il Cosacco. This is, in my opinion, one of director Ferdinando Baldi's best films.Excellent battle scenes are what I remember best from this film. Its been many years since I saw this film and it is not available on VHS or DVD at this time. It appears to have disappeared without a trace. I believe this film was released on VHS in Germany years ago but I need a confirmation.
