Storyline

A young Russian aristocrat, Baron Fyodor Jeremin, volunteers to serve with a Dragon squadron to impress the girl who rejected his love. Just at this time the 1863 insurrection explodes in Poland. He enlists to serve in the army being sent to suppress the revolt. He believes that now it's enough to defeat the Poles, become an officer and hero, get a bunch of medals, and then return and lay all of this at the feet of her beloved. However, the "little Polish war" looks completely different to the way that young Jeremin imagined it to be. In course of time, he learns to be on the wrong side. But there is no escape - he must kill or he will be killed. What's more, he falls in love with a beautiful Polish girl... Written by Polish Cinema Database <http://info.fuw.edu.pl/Filmy/>

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
