The Black Cross

The Black Cross

A love story of Zbyszek and Danusia. When the girl is kidnapped, the
young knight, her father (Jurand of Spychów) and their friends wage
a private war on the Teutonic Order, in which Jurand of Spychów stands
against Siegfried de Löwe. The director painted a spectacular portrait of
the basis for the Polish-Teutonic conflict resolved in the Battle of Grunwald. Faithful to the literary source, it is the first historical blockbuster in
the annals of Polish film.
