A Very Good Example Of War Movie
1 June 2016 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Juliusz Machulski is a renown Polish film director, and he is well known for his Va Bank series, as well as some more both comedy and serious dramas. Here, in this 1992 movie, he is delving deep into Polish Riot of 1863-1864. Made with the help of a stellar Polish- Russian cast, with Radosław Pazura − jako porucznik Fiodor Jeremin Siergiej Szakurow − jako porucznik Jegor Żuryn Janusz Gajos − jako rotmistrz Jan Dobrowolski Jan Machulski − jako pułkownik Markowski Katarzyna Łochowska − jako Emilia, córka Petersilgego Franciszek Pieczka − jako Błażej Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu − jako Franek Bała Aleksander Bednarz − jako rządca Petersilge Anna Majcher − jako Kulina Tomasz Stockinger − jako Failleul Wojciech Klata − jako Symcha Jerzy Nowak − jako Lejba Wiktor Proskurin − jako doktor Aleksandr Berda − jako Krysa Siergiej Sozontiew − jako Chudous Wasilij Miszczenko − jako Niemczuk Aleksiej Sieriebriakow − jako Jemelianow among others, this movie is something of a curate's egg - there are real cool scenes and some weaker moments. The cast is mostly excellent, and the nature scenes are shot with a definite gusto, while battle scenes are somewhat poorly and shakily shot with a certain blur in eyes. The intentionally bleak color scheme is of a great advantage, but generally the film leaves with some mixed bag of emotions/ The love line is not developed thoroughly and the short timing of a movie does not allow the plot to unwind at its fullest. Anyway, it is worth seeing at least once
