Maria and Napoleon
Director Leonard Buczkowski chronicles the affair between Polish countess Marie Walewska and Napoleon. In her 20s and already married, Marie throws herself into an affair with the French emperor and manages to influence his treatment of the Poles. Marie does double duty, mixing passion with politics to the benefit her beloved country. Beata Tyszkiewicz, Gustaw Holoubek and Juliusz Luszczewski star in Buczkowski's final directorial effort.
