LOTNA (1959) * with switchable English subtitles *

Andrzej Wajda, Wojciech Zukrowski (screenplay) | 1 more credit » Stars: Jerzy Pichelski, Adam Pawlikowski, Jerzy Moes

September, 1939: Lotna is a superb example of an Arabian horse and the pride of her owner. Too old to ride her, Lotna nevertheless remains faithful to her master. And like Lotna, the Polish cavalry is a superb example of an art of war, which instantly becomes obsolete with the German invasion of their neighbor. And despite their loyalty to Poland, their customs and their pride, they are brutally informed of their obsolescence in the face of fierce and swift attacks by the enemy's tanks. Lotna's fate in this new kind of warfare will become a metaphor for the confirmation of chivalry's end and its replacement by merciless and impersonal slaughter.
