| Incredibly Weak Try
I love Polish films and love Polish history, and I do remember fondly old movie Zamach Stanu, where Marshal Pilsudski is shown as a sly old fox getting back to power. I also like 1920 Bitwa Warszawska where younger Marshal is depicted fighting against Soviet invasion of 1920. Both are great films, so when I heard about this new effort showing the early years of Marshal and his slow rise to power, I jumped at the opportunity. Alas, my initial gladness soon evaporated as the result is a terribly weak, badly filmed, poorly played, especially laughable when seemingly Russian people speak with awful accents, far from Russian speech, and with a very uneven pacing Bad montage and very poor color scheme add to a general feel of horrid amateurish attempt. This could have been a better series of many episodes with better pace, better performance, and better Russian accents, since Russia is so prominent here. Another huge sin of filmmakers is a jumpy tempo, in a hopeless try to embrace too many events at a too shot time span. This only seems as a torn and frayed fabric of disjointed fragments. Borys Szyc is a nice actor but not for this role, he simply does not possess certain necessary charisma, or power to depict such a complicated and ,multi-faceted persona of Marshal. Szyc can goggle his eyes, utter overblown phrases without being a real thing, He sizzles but never bubbles, moans but never means it, speaks but does not deliver. In all, a poor and very weak film of a very low quality, dubious merit and laughable moral. It just does not convince, As a one-timer for students to see how not to shoot serious movies it can hold, otherwise, it never will.
