Could Have Been A Tremendous Serial, Instead, Sadly, Turned Out Very Boring
Mini series are a very risky affair - they can be either too swift and all on the surface, or very plodding and slow, dying in the process. This is what happened to this 2001 Polish serial about Polish national hero, Marshal Jozef Pilsudski. His life was a very captivating story - young struggles, exile in Russia, fight for Freedom, way to Liberty, stairway to Leadership, Triumphs and Tragedies, wars, old days and glorious remembering. Sadly, it did not work. 8 (not 7, as it is written on the main page of the serial) episodes drag and stutter and slumber along, very slowly and painfully boring. There are no battle scenes, no large scale footage, instead, we are treated to some old documentary footage, and the whole serial drowns and sinks and too many talks and too slow a tempo.
