Old Polish (Russian) Films

Hi,

I may have posted this a while ago but that post is now gone. I'm looking for the name of an old film shown in Poland in the mid to late 70's. I think someone told me it was Russian. It was about a little boy who played the violin. I know it 's not a lot to go on but...

I thought that since some time has passed and more and more old films are being re-circulated, I may be able to find it.

Dzienkuje Bardzo,

Tamara

You probably mean Polonez Ogińskiego. Yes, I saw this Soviet film in late 70s. Gripping. I will never forget the scene when Germans burn the captured partisan`s chest with a burner.

Download it here:

I know it 's not a lot to go on but...

It was a lot.

I forgot to add that the film was very popular in Poland because it features a Polish hero (played by a Polish actor) who saves the boy .

The final scene when they meet many years after the war was very moving. I always cried when I watched it as a boy. My mother also cried when she watched how the boy plays the violin. Her greatest dream was to turn me into such a violinist. I tried hard in the music school, but had to give up due to unexpected circumstances.

Pawian,

That is so totally awesome! My husband has looked for this movie for the 20 years that he has been here. I see that this is the original in Russian. Do you know if the version which was dubbed in Polish is available? Also, can this be put on a DVD somehow or does it have to be watched on a computer (may be silly questions to you but we're still technically challenged.

BTW, my husband is a violin player :)

Again, bardzo dzienkuje.

Tamara

Pawian,

My husband also said it might have been called "Pożegnanie Ojczyzny"? Is maybe the version in Polish?

To find the full movie you gotta look for it online, can't remember from where exactly I downloaded it from.

Your life of crying, family crying together, thwarted dreams... ultimately triumphing with a passion for photography replacing your quashed ambitions to be a violin virtuoso and teaching children well and showing them all the beauty they possess inside, sounds like it would make a good Russian movie.

Your crazy. :):):):):)

But thank you anyway.

It is, I am sure, but the holder of such a version is still unknown. Sorry. Only Russian versions are available online.

Also, can this be put on a DVD somehow

You can copy films from youtube - there are many ways - one of them: youtube.com/watch?v=rPVg0V86DZg

BTW, my husband is a violin player :)

Just like me. Give warm regards to your hubby.

My husband also said it might have been called "Pożegnanie Ojczyzny"? Is maybe the version in Polish?

Yes, it is the Polish title, but of the polonaise by one of Ogiński family, not of the film:

performed by Belarussian singers

First in Russian
