Certainly one of the highest achievements of 1960s Polish cinema, and a stirring nationalist epic. Based on the classic novel by Henryk Sienkiewicz, Order of Teutonic Knights is a vivid portrayal of customs and life in medieval Poland, brilliantly directed with a epic sweep by Aleksander Ford. Features a cast of thousands, including Andrzej Szalawski and Grazyna Staniszewska. "The scale would put DeMille to shame" (Time Out).
