Description
 
From the pages of history comes this dramatic tale of forbidden passions and political intrigue by accomplished Polish filmmaker Leonard Buczkowski (The Eagle). In 1807, Napoleon meets and falls in love with 22-year-old Polish countess Maria Walewska, who is unhappily married to a much older man. Enchanted by the blonde, blue-eyed countess, the emperor enters into an affair with Maria, who uses the relationship to induce Napoleon to treat Poland fairly. Marysia I Napoleon represents the mature work of Buczkowski, who was greatly respected for directing Forbidden Songs, the first film from the Polish film industry after World War II. In Polish with English subtitles.
