In Desert and Wilderness - W Pustyni i w Puszczy
This internationally acclaimed and award-winning film combines a children's adventure story with the look and feel of Lawrence of Arabia. At the end of the 19th century two kids—children of engineers working on the Suez Canal—are kidnapped in the heart of the African continent. The children along with two African kids manage to escape from the hands of their captors and embark on a journey across the harsh yet breathtakingly beautiful African landscape. Their great adventure is full of obstacles, dangers, and fun as they learn about life on their return home. The film is the screen adaptation of the novel by Henryk Sienkiewicz, Nobel Prize winner and author of the internationally acclaimed Quo Vadis?
