Polish prize-winning film. Playing children are lured by the ‘magician’ who gives then guns and teaches them war games. As trained cannon fodder they are marched away, while others take their places. It’s interesting that a film of this nature could be made in Poland at that time. The uniforms of the magician and his assistant are clearly both Russian and German based.
