PO POLSKU

 

Polski Fanfan, pierwszy polski serial spod znaku "plaszcza i szpady" - pisano o "Czarnych chmurach" w prasie z lat 70. Osia fabuly staly sie dramatyczne epizody z walk o utrzymanie przy Polsce Prus Ksiazecych. Pozostawaly one w lennej zaleznosci od Rzeczypospolitej od 1525 r., kiedy Albrecht Hohenzollern sekularyzowal panstwo zakonne i zlozyl w Krakowie hold krolowi polskiemu.

W XVII wieku na mocy traktatow welawsko-bydgoskich ziemie te przypadly elektorowi brandenburskiemu. Polska byla wowczas krajem wolnolci szlacheckich, w Prusach szlachcie wiodlo sie znacznie gorzej. Na czele opozycji przeciwko elektorowi Fryderykowi Wilhelmowi stanal pulkownik Krystian Ludwik Kalkstein-Stolinski.

W 1670 r. musial uciekac z Prus do Polski. Podstepnie zwabiony do rezydencji ambasadora Brandta w Warszawie, na rozkaz elektora zostal porwany, mimo protestow polskiej szlachty i osobistego stawiennictwa krola Michala Korybuta Wisniowieckiego - skazany na kare smierci i stracony w Klajpedzie w 1672 r. Burzliwe dzieje Kalksteina-Stolinskiego staly sie osnowa scenariusza serialu telewizyjnego.

Oczywiscie, jak wielokrotnie podkreslal rezyser Andrzej Konic, w "Czarnych chmurach" nie mozna doszukiwac sie zbyt doslownych analogii do glosnej w Rzeczypospolitej "sprawy Kalksteina" ani bohaterowi serialu, pulkownikowi Krzysztofowi Dowgirdowi, przypisywac cech historycznego pierwowzoru.

Jest to przede wszystkim film akcji, awanturniczo-przygodowy, a wiec na pierwszy plan wysuwaja sie ucieczki, pogonie, pojedynki, intrygi i oczywiscie milosc. Calosc skontruowana na zasadzie powiesci-rzeki, sklada sie z dziesieciu godzinnych odcinkow. Realizacja trwala przeszlo rok, poza lodzkim atelier zdjecia krecono w pieknych wnetrzach w Baranowie, w Palacu Biskupim w Kielcach i w Rytwianach pod Kielcami, w Laczynku, Krakowie, a malownicze plenery - m.in. pod Augustowem.

W glownych rolach upamietnili sie Leonard Pietraszak jako pulkownik Dowgird i Ryszard Pietruski jako jego wachmistrz i przyjaciel, kuty na cztery nogi sluga Kacper. Sercami nieustraszonych zabijakow zawladnely piekna staroscianka Anna (Elzbieta Starostecka), wychowanica hetmana Sobieskiego (Mariusz Dmochowski) oraz szlachcianka Magda (Anna Seniuk).

Richard Brzostek - 08/10/2006 5 of 5 Stars!
"Czarne Chmury" is a 10-episode Polish television show set in the 17th century. I thought the series was filled with exciting duels and horse chase scenes, and some occasional humor as well. To top it off, I thought the series had some of the most dramatic music I have ever heard. In effect, it is like a soap opera as most episodes end with a cliffhanger to keep the viewers in suspense for the next episode. Furthermore, the details and characters are tied together throughout the series. At the start of each episode there is a recap of the past events to refresh your memory or to help those that start watching from somewhere in the middle of the series. If you enjoyed "Pan Wolodyjowski," then you will probably love "Czarne Chmury." By and large, the costumes and effects are comparable or slightly better than "Pan Wolodyjowski." I found the series to be very enjoyable and entertaining, regardless of the weak special effects, due to the age of this 1973 TV-Series. The most prominent distinctions between the two is that "Czarne Chmury" involves Prussia and is considerably longer, running over 500 minutes. If you enjoy historical films filled with adventure, then look no further.
