Polish historical movie from 1999, directed by Jerzy Hoffman, based on Henryk Sienkiewicz’s novel of the same title.

The film is set in the Ukrainian lands belonging to the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland in the middle of the 17th century. A Polish noble Jan Skrzetuski, and a Cossack otaman Bohun, fall in love with the same woman, Polish noblewoman Helena. Their rivalry for her hand takes place in the background of the Cossack uprising led by Bohdan Chmielnicki against the forces of the Commonwealth. The film leads us through the Battle of Zhovti Vody and Battle of Korsuń, culminating in the heroic defense of Zbarazh by Polish troops.

At the time of its filming it was the most expensive Polish film ever made.

“With Fire and Sword” is now available for watching on YouTube with Polish and English subtitles. The link to the movie can be found below:

 

A beautiful soundtrack was created for “With Fire and Sword”, a fragment of which can be heard below.

The Polish historical drama “Katyn”, published in 2007, touches upon an extremely tragic event, which was the murder of captive Polish officers by the Soviet Union in 1940, shortly after the Third Reich and the USSR had captured Poland. Until the collapse of the USSR in 1990, this crime was hidden and falsified for many years, and the Russians claimed that they had nothing to do with this genocide. “Katyń” is the first film that so openly touched upon this dramatic subject.

Director Andrzej Wajda presented this story through the eyes of women who waited for the return of their beloved, but the main characters are Polish officers who remained in Soviet captivity. The film shows us their forced deportation to the east and execution from the hands of the NKVD.

“Katyń” was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Foreign Language Film category. It is now available for watching on YouTube with the whole package of subtitles. A link can be found below:
