Audience Reviews for Krzyzacy

More romantic than Dr. Zhivago,equally moving to the likes of an Alexander Nevsky or closer to the political turmoil of Traveling Players,a film which has nothing to be jealous of the epic boldness of a Lawrence of Arabia type of feast! Criminally underrated,Aleksander Ford's storytelling focuses on the landscapes' pain rather the character's felicities and the astounding dialog is a bonus,based on the Sienkiewicz novel.Forgive me for saying this but the Grunwald massacre pumped me up!
