The Eagle director Leonard Buczkowski takes the helm for this tale of the forbidden love shared between Napoleon Bonaparte and the much-younger countess Marie Walewska. The year was 1807, and Napoleon has become instantly smitten with the enchanting twenty-two year old countess. But Marie Walewska is married, albeit unhappily, to an older man. Realizing the potential to influence Napoleon, however, the blue-eyed beauty attempts to persuade her lover to treat Poland more fairly.
