Why watch some fictional movie when you can read about real polish spies. Rumour has it that when Ian Fleming created his fictional character James Bond he based him on the exploits of a real polish spy Rotmistrz Jerzy Sosnowski aka Georg von Nałęcz-Sosnowski who's numerous love affairs gain him a treasure trove of information during the inter-war period when he was based in Berlin. Come to think of it one of the characters in the polish series "Pogranicze w ogniu" was based on him as well as just one of the spies. So I guess you can watch all 24 episodes but fair warning it's not Hollywood.

That's actually a brilliant review! Mind if I coin that? Next time I see a really good insightful, intelligent film that I like I'll say "Great film - it's not hollywood" :)

Conan Doyle's chemistry professor, if I'm not mistaken.

Dead right, SHT. Jan Karski's story is just amazing.

It was a joke,after some one claims James Bond was inspired by a Polish spy....forgeting Ian Flemming was a spook himself...and that Bond is an english public school boy ...

Who said I forgot that Fleming was a spook. All I said is "Rumour has it", it's a tight niche organisation, they knew of each others exploits, more of a reason for the rumour to be true :)

On the larger balance of probabilities I agree 100% there probably was a dash of this Polish chap in the mix,but it was definatly a mix of people. Its funny these days as more MI6 files are being slightly declassified that some of the more absurd bond storylines are being shown to have a basis in fact; the wartime SOE operative who came ashore at the seaside resort part of the Hague,stripped off his dry suit and was wearing a white tuxedo,he got past the germans by pretending to be a drunk coming back from the cassino :)

not spy but action:
Ekstradycja, Oficerowie - both in episodes
not bad, not so great either, watchable

Psy - a classic of sorts ;) plus other creations by Pasikowski. A lot of shooting and cursing.
