Throughout the whole series, Gustlik uses the specific local dialect, accent and pronunciation from the Upper Silesian Industrial Region; however, as he mentioned several times, he actually hails from the Cieszyn Silesia - an entirely different part of Silesia, with very different local dialect.

Very valuable as a historical portrayal of Polish and Soviet allies during WWII. Very limited scope of all the issues of that period. I love the battle action, romance and warmth displayed by the characters. Of course, all the characters become so lovable after one or two episodes, especially Janek and Marusia.
Be prepared for a one-sided portrayal of the Polish/Russian heroes and heroines and German underdogs, but that was the politics of the 1960's when the series was shown on Polish TV. The story line is written to hold your interest and there is seldom a dull moment. The characters seem to be as real-to-life as is possible in film. The dialogue is beauty in itself, although the subtitles on my DVD only cover about 15 to 20% of the total. That's OK because you get the gist of what's being said. With some basic Polish or Russian you will be enjoying the actors speaking in their native tongue.
Another quality Polish film. Try to find it with English subtitles if possible, but great for practicing your Russian/Polish listening skills. I was watching Gunsmoke and Bonanza on American TV at the time, which was pablum compared to Four Tankmen and A Dog.
