Storyline

The script by Eva Borusevicova describes the true story of Janosik, the XVIII centuries outlaw, who was prowling through Slovak-Polish border. The story of Janosik, a legendary "Central European Robin Hood", based on a real XVIII century documents and on a romantic legend, operating with a very subjective, original lyricism: the hero is tragic and at the same time very contemporary: he could be an American boy, burned by communing with cruelty of the war comes back from Iraq to the city ghetto and becomes a leader of a gang.

worst polish movie ever
6 April 2010 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I have watch movies directed by Agnieszka Holland ... this is the worst I have seen so for ... polish cinematography is dying ...everything in this movie is bad ... screenplay, dialogs ... etc ... watch it to the sleep ... i am give it 2/10 ... this should be a real history tell, but it is only a piece of that history, made in some kind of fantasy movie. there was a serial movie of it created by polish people and it was a much better. Agnieszka Holland is a really good director so I don't understand how she accept to direct that film. If You want to see real movie in the same genre please take a look at Russian: "Wolfhound from the Tribe of Grey Dogs" it is much better and much entertaining than this. watch it on Your own responsibility.
