Considered as one of the greatest and most popular Polish films of all time, this epic is a spectacular historical romance and war film set in the Middle Ages. Based on the best-selling book by Nobel Prize winner Henryk Sienkiewicz, the magnificent scope of Knights compares with the best in Hollywood epics and is a film for viewers of all ages.

Excellent film of this type and for its time,but the source material has limitations,as apparently explained in the booklet which is not supplied to renters. The original screen ratio was 2.35:1 and has been reduced to 1.77:1, resulting in occasional decapitation, and of course degradation of the camera framing. The print looks its age.
