He escapes from a prisoner camp, then he travels around Nazi-occupied Europe and northern Africa in attempts of getting to the Polish Army in exile to fight the enemy. Finally, he gets to Poland in time to accidentally become a war hero.Written by
The film is unique in terms of language realism: members of each nationality, encountered by a main hero on his way, speak their own language (German, Serbo-Croatian, French, Italian, English), what makes his adventures and communication problems more realistic. See more »
In part two of the film, Private Dolas joins French Foreign Legion in Syria, then he is captured by the British troops, preparing to invade Syria and Lebanon (in June 1941), and so he finds himself in a British camp, presumably in Palestine. Then the camp is attacked by Italian commandos, which was possible, provided, that it was situated in western Egypt or Libya. See more »
One of the best polish war time comedy if not the best one
It's a story about a polish rifleman - Franek Dolas.It begins on 1st October of 1939 when Nazis invade Poland.Generally the whole movie is divided into three episodes.In the first one Franek gets himself into German pow camp.He is making his best trying to escape but everything he does gets him only into more trouble.Frankly speaking Franek is a kind of guy that is always getting into some kind of trouble.When he wants to do something right the result is opposite every time. Through all three episodes we can see Franek's funniest adventures in occupied Poland,Yugoslavia,Italy,few other European countries and even Africa where he joins French Foreign Legion. I think that it should be very interesting and funny for Europeans to see what the Poles think about them and why we sometimes laugh about English or Italians for example :P
