Im almost abit ashamed that we poles arent making historical movies like this one. Seems like the russians and ukrainians cares more about the polish history then we do.

Resently we only made the movie "katyn" were we blamed everything on the russians, while the russians have made several movies about our shared history.

This historical epic is based on "Taras Bulba", one of Nikolay Gogol's most famous stories. The events of the Zaporozhskaya Sech harken back to the most troubled period in Cossack history - the struggle with the Rech Pospolitaya. The family of Cossack leader Taras Bulba finds itself at the centre of turmoil and political intrigue which threaten the existence of the Cossack race. The plot thickens when Bulba's son Andrey falls in love with a Polish princess and wants to abandon the Cossacks. Torn between family and duty, Taras Bulba reveals to his son the dying wish of his parents...

Don't know about others, but what I've noticed is that in many countries (not just Poland) many movies tend to be huge "hits" when they follow in line with the political tone of that particular time during which they're released. This "phenomenon" isn't limited even to movies though, but also tends to include books, news papers, etc..

The poles have a strongly ingrained victim mentality. This can be seen in their culture, art, music and even their politics.

Remembered they had the audacity to ask for extra EU votes because of the second world war. Even though most of polands infrastructure, roads, buildings etc. is being paid for by handouts from the EU. Most of which is paid out of the german taxpayers pocket.

The topic was about movies … and YES, they should pay, and pay, and apologize … and pay again. :) I have no problem with this whatsoever. If you do ...tough!

The sense of your own victimhood is manifested by your constant complaints that Poles take away jobs from Brits, and that they clean toilets.

Can't you find another place of employment to practice law that you claim you study?

So stop behaving like a victim and find yourself your own toilet.

You're such an uneducated dimwit it's laughable. Stop embarrassing yourself by replying on a whim. You have a very _primitive_ thought process.

I haven't seen any of the post-80s polish movies, including Katyn, but Andrzej Wajda's early works are awesome.

The fact that his own father, a Polish cavalry officer, was murdered by the Soviets during the Katyn massacre adds a personal touch to the movie, nevertheless the guys is a true giant.

Over the years, a lot of historical movies have been made here. Some good, some not. It would be great to see more movies that look forward and not to the past. I've been to the cinema here a few times this tear but not seen anything I liked. It seems not much is happening here in the film industry.
