World War One...

brought defeat to the three powers...

that had occupied

the partitioned Poland for 123 years.

Germany and Austria lost the war.

The Bolshevik Revolution plunged Russia...

into a bloody civil war.

In November 1918,

after over a century of bondage

Poland regained her independence.


'Moscow. The Kremlin.'.

To the attention of Comrade Lenin.

At this moment,

when the majority of the white generals...

have been defeated,

the invincible Red Army...

should come to assist...

the Polish proletariat...

in its struggle to abolish...

'the bourgeois government.'.


'From the Polish Soviet Republic'

to the worldwide revolution.

Leon Trotsky,

'People's Commissar

for Military and Naval Affairs.'

I trust the Politburo

will support this decision?

Poland is a barrier...

that separates the Russian revolution

from the European revolution.

It must be eliminated.

Thank you, comrade Stalin.

Who's in favor?

So, comrades...

first we take Poland,

then Germany,

Italy, England...

and the entire world.

I know this scent so well

t read your little card

I'm tired of your gifts of gems and gold.

'Cause now I have a whim to travel very far.

Why don't we just escape out of this cold.

To be there, with you, my sweetie,

to be there, in our Tahiti...

WARSAW A special manifesto

to the Polish nation.

Hear ye, hear ye.

Fellow citizens.

We've regained our political autonomy,

but our poetry is shitting on itself.

It is high time we created

new canons of national art.

Down with the bourgeois Dadaism.

Down with it.

Down with it.

Down with the Cubism, Primitivism

and Expressionism.

Down with it.

Our new art shall draw

on the proletarian Onanism.

Wankers of the world, unite.


I opt for a more patriotic content.

They'll accuse us of Bolshevik agitation.

The Major is right.

Some patriotic spirit, gentlemen.

Every girl is proud and merry

when a patriot plucks her cherry.

No one will be as dear to me as you.

Only you.

Excuse me... sorry...

No one's kisses will be so sweet as yours...

none but yours.

Your heart is so kind and sweet

I can calm and comfort mine.

When I'm down and cry or weep...

and pine.

No one else can love me so much as you.

Only you.

Who can understand me so well as you.

Only you.

Other's words and sweet caresses...

always will be cold and dull...

for my love is once and for all for you.

Only you.


You're late again.

We're being mobilized and...

Oh Christ.

A stint at the front will cure him

of that futurist nonsense.

Oh, no, no. Nonsense

is my specialty. Right, dear?


I love you.


I love you.

A lot?

A lot.

How much is a lot?

A lot is a lot is a lot.

Marry me.

Marry me.

Do it.

Today. Now. This instant.

You madman.

Don't get up, gentlemen.


Here you are.

Thank you.

Ten of clubs.

Ace of hearts.

How do they do that, Ola?

They count the cards.

Make use of your talent in Monte Carlo.

I'm on the black list there.

Me too.

Ignacy, is that you?

Oh... God bless you.

With Father Ignacy, please.

Asleep? At this hour?

So wake him up.

I'm calling from the Curia.

Yes, the bishop's one, who else's?

Get him for me, on the double.

Gentlemen, I am impressed.

Captain Kostrzewa.

Will you permit me...

to ask the lady to dance?

I'd be immensely honored.

You are absolutely ravishing.

The lady only dances on stage.

And that?

That was someone special.

What are you suggesting?

Enough, pops.

Excuse me?

You're dismissed.

I demand satisfaction.

What are you doing?


the uniform of a Polish officer

has been stained.

Barman, was the vodka straight?

Yes sir.

A straight vodka leaves no stains

on uniforms and honor.

You have declared your consent

before the Catholic Church.

Lord, bless this couple.

In the name of the Father,

of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Lord, bless and consecrate

those two rings as a symbol...

of their love.

Through Christ our Lord.

Exchange the rings

to seal your sacred vows.

Take this ring...

as a sign of my love and fidelity.

Take this ring...

as a sign of my love and fidelity.

Kiss. Kiss. Kiss. Kiss.

Will you return?

I will.

Say it.

I will.

Promise me you will.

I promise.



Don't you think it's a mistake?

How will the West react

to the Kiev offensive?

I don't care, Prime Minister.

First of all...

we've been at an undeclared war

with the Soviets for a year.

Secondly, our intelligence tells us...

the Soviets are preparing a massive

offensive. We'll pre-empt this.


or firstly to be precise,

an ethnic Poland would be too

weak to defend herself...

against the White or Red Russia

on the East...

and Germany on the West.

That's why I opt for...

a federation of independent states,

the nations used to live

on the Polish territory.

And that is why I acceded

to Hetman Petliura's request...

to help him liberate Ukraine

from the Bolshevist plague.

Once we take Kiev...

we'll give it back to the Ukrainians.

What's your sweet decoy?

Why are you attracting why are you...

attracting every handsome boy?

Why are you attracting why are you...

attracting every handsome boy?

To your 1ances, fear at bay

Drive the Bolsheviks away.

To your 1ances, fear at bay

Drive the Bolsheviks away.

There's no fate that could be worse:
