How is that film? Worth watching?

Uneven: some scenes great, some soso. Uniforms ok – sso good for modellers. Educative in neutral way, if You know nothing about 1920 War. For a Polish history fan, a bit disapointing. Could be much much better, bearing the importance of the war for Poland and Europe.

Definitely worth watching. Like all films, anyone with a decent knowledge of the subject is likely to have issues with it: It's by no means a documentary.

I think I saw part of this on Youtube.

At the end of the flick, Lenin is shown with his cronies, including Stalin, in the Kremlin. Lenin is furious about the failure of the communist invasion of Poland and throws a minor fit.

Lenin's fit is certainly justified…Germany was ripe for a workers uprising and once started who knows where the fire would spread given the aftermath of WWI…the failure to defeat Poland, was in reality a failure to spread the workers revolution and ultimately a failure of Communism.

Worth watching. Obviously a film from the Polish point of view but I think the apparently anti-Soviet scenes are probably accurate in showing the take no prisoners type of attitudes that seem to have always permeated war in Eastern Europe. Good uniforms and good battle scenes. I believe by the same director who directed the film adaptations of Sienkiewicz's Trilogy, which were also good and bad but fun to watch.

Yes pretty good.

Looks good. Any film that knocks "International Socialism" is OK in my book.

Great Film.

I bought it, and watched a few times, enjoyed it. Impressed by the women soldiers, and the boy scouts. I bought some of these from Siberia Miniatures. Hope to do games based on movie. I have all the Russians, and many figures to sub for Polish.

ditto to Shagnasty and jurgenation.

Been on my to watch list since I first saw it announced.

I have the Polish Trilogy by Hoffman and enjoyed it and expect to do the same with this.

I just watched it and I found it very entertaining.

I have a good mind to get some of the Siberia Miniatures figures painted up myself.

Is there a good wargamer's source for those uniforms the Polish Army wore?
