Storyline

In the early 1810s, Poles, part of Russia's client state of Lithuania, think independence will come if they join forces with Napoleon when he invades Russia. This unity of purpose, in one district, is undermined by two families, feuding since the head of one shot the head of the other twenty years before. There are hopes of a reconciliation through a marriage of Pan Tadeusz, a Soplica, whose father, the murderer, is in hiding somewhere, and Zosia, a teen-aged girl, a Horeszko who lives in the household of Pan's uncle. Other cross-currents - of love, family, politics, village traditions, land reform, and what it means to be Polish - give the film texture. It's an exile's story. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Should of been nominated for the Oscars
7 March 2000 | by (Warsaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

The best movie I seen in a long time. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences should have made this movie a nominee for the FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM category at the 2000 Oscar's (I think the Academy is biased against such true works of art and history). This movie above all others should have been nominated, what is wrong with the Academy?

Excellent movie! Wajda has done an excellent job. Wajda is indeed the world's greatest movie director. Congratulations to Wajda on the Oscar you deserve it more than anyone else.
