This could be me last review
13 February 2017 | by hugobolso-1See all my reviews

I've seen this movie several times in Uruguay, that was very popular on TV Channel 10, in Spanish, during the 80s.

I thought that was a miniseries and just know that is a 6 hours film, that was an Oscar nominated. I cannot understand why have only one review. If the movie was translated to Spanish, must be translated to English in the 80s too.

Wonderful cinematography and with a great and charming performance by Jadwiga Baranska, the night, Jerzy Binczycki was more the day. Wonderful ending at the beginning of WWI.-

Why this great and classic films are totally forgotten here?

I cannot understand this!!!
