During the Polish Uprising young Russian officer begins to realize how morality changes during the war.


During the Polish November Uprising the unit of Russian cavalry is sent to bring the order in the area, where the insurgents are active. Among the officers is Baron Fyodor Jeremin, young and naive arristocrat, who volunteered to join the army hoping to forget being rejected by a girl. But the fight against Polish insurgents isn’t what he epxected to be - instead of glorious battles they ride around villages and hunt the outnumbered and poorly armed survivors of the insurgents units supported by the local inhabitants. Soon he will have to face the even darker reality when his superior starts to avenge the killed soldiers by killing the civilians.

One of the very few Polish war movies that was not infected with the "glorious patriotic past" virus. What we have here is the wide range of attitude the people have during the uprising - Russian officers, who obey the rules, but sometimes just have enough of the constant threat, civilians who support the uprising, but don’t want to confront the Russians, civilians who doesn’t support the uprising, but don’t want to confront the insurgents and the people why stood up and fight the fight that is doomed to failure.

Very good war movie impartially showing the face of Polish November Uprising.
