Taras Bulba 1962
After centuries of fighting for possession of the Ukraine, the Cossacks aid the Polish Army in 1550 by defeating the Turks and driving their soldiers over a steep cliff. Cossack leader Taras Bulba is invited to a Polish banquet celebrating the victory, but he and his men are betrayed by their hosts and forced to flee across the steppes. Taras vows that his sons will learn the things the Poles know so that they will never be surprised by their treachery again.
Later, Taras raises two sons, Andrei and Ostap, and eventually sends them to Kiev University to learn the ways of their enemies. The headstrong Andrei falls head over heels for a beautiful noblewoman, Lady Natalia, daughter of the city's Polish governor. The Bulba boys flee Kiev post-haste, returning to the family farmstead on the steppe. Everything Taras taught them would seem to have been reinforced by their experiences, which leave them hating the Poles even more — although Andrei cannot forget his lady love. He pines for her intensely, even as he rejoins the Cossack community at his father's side....
