Second World War, occupied Poland. Somewhere in the woods near the town of Bialystok, a partisan group, commanded by a self-proclaimed General Boldyn, is stationed. The commander demands total obedience and cannot bear objections or criticism. Moreover, he shows signs of mental disorders, sometimes hardly discerning the reality from his dreams. Seeking relaxation, he hits the bottle, but this only makes things worse as he starts hallucinating. General Boldyn cannot stand idleness - it makes his autocratic tendencies grow even stronger. In order to avoid it, his subordinates start to provide him with false reports on sudden moves of German troops. The resulting decisions of the General prove wrong; a disaster becomes inevitable. "Boldyn" is more a psychological movie rather than a war story - it's focused more on relations between the commander and his subordinates, and the General's internal struggle with himself, than on the history of the time. There are only a few battle scenes ... Written by Marek
