I am a friend of the Canadian War Museum and received their e-bulletin today. Here's something that might interest some of you:
"Battle of Warsaw 3D Film
A unique, and fascinating film will be presented in Ottawa Thursday, February 23, 2012 at 7:30 pm. at the Cineplex Silvercity Gloucester Cinemas (2385 City Park Dr.)
THE WORLD'S MOST IMPORTANT BATTLE 1920 (1920 BITWA WARSZAWSKA), a new feature film by legendary master of Polish cinema Jerzy Hoffman (Deluge, With Fire and Sword) will premiere in Ottawa. This is the first 3D action film production in Europe. Counted as the most expensive film in a history of Polish cinema, the grand-scale epic saga follows the tradition of the genre's classics of sweeping narrative. A splendid lesson of history, it is characteristic for the 79-year old director's works. Cinematography is by Oscar-nominated Slawomir Idziak(Black Hawk Down, King Arthur, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix). The score is composed by Krzesimir Debski with a variety of popular songs from the time of action. The movie is produced by noted veteran Polish producer Jerzy Michaluk (Nights and Days, With Fire and Sword).
The film focuses on the 1920 clash between the powerful Red Army and soldiers of newly reborn Poland, which resulted in a repulsion of the Bolsheviks from the gates of Warsaw. The heroic effort of the Poles, led by Marshal Jozef Pilsudski, defeated the Soviets in the battle which shattered Lenin's dreams of conquering the European continent and introducing communism to the world. The action also reflects the participation of daring American pilots from the Kosciuszko Squadron as well as the important role of Ukrainian troops.
The World's Most Important Battle 1920 is not rated yet, with a suggested age limit of 12 years old. Dialogues are in Polish and Russian, with English subtitles. Further information is available on www.pffamerica.com and by calling 866-466-ARTS (866-466-2787)"
Looks interesting but I haven't decided yet if I will go see it.
Regards from Canada.

I wasn't readily aware of this - keeping Lenin out of W. Europe - but it makes perfect sense. Their Winged Hussars did the same thing at the Battle of Vienna with the Mohammedans, keeping them from spreading into W. Europe. where would the West be without them? Where can I see this movie here?
