“KOS”: What is the movie about?
The spring of 1794 was boiling in Poland. General Tadeusz “Kos” Kosciuszko (Jacek Brasiak) returns to the country and plans to start an uprising against the Russians, mobilizing the Polish nobility and peasants. He is accompanied by his loyal friend and former slave Domingo (Jason Mitchell).
It follows a ruthless Russian cavalry commander, Donin (Robert Vitkevich), who is on Kosciuszko’s trail along with a wanted poster, who wants to capture the general at any cost before he starts a national rebellion.
At the same time, the young peasant Ignac (Bartosz Bielenja), an illegitimate nobleman, dreams of receiving a coat of arms and estate from his illegitimate father, Dučnovski (Andrej Severin), who included him in his will just before his death. . When his father dies, the boy must escape from his half-brother, Stanislaw (Piotr Pasek), who does not want to allow his father’s will to come true.
Ignac steals the will and has only two days to appear in court and prove his nobility. While escaping, Ignac meets Domingo, and a strong bond of understanding is created between the two men, even though neither knows the other’s language. Together they go to the palace of Pułkownikowa (Agnieszka Grochowska), where Kościuszko is hiding, awaiting negotiations with the magnates. Kos does not trust Ignac and keeps him in detention, but at the decisive moment the fate of the uprising will be in the hands of this inconspicuous noble bastard.

Kos: We needed this movie
“Kos” tells the story of the events of the Kosciuszko Uprising, showing the contempt that activates among Poles at the push of a button. I watch Paweł Maślony’s film and I think that there are people in Polish politics who want to take us back to the time of slavery and use it for themselves. Am I wrong, Messrs. Slakhta, of the group in power? – Przemysław Bollin wrote about the film in Onet.
