Lotna translated as Speed Andrzej Wajda directs

Translated as 'Speed' - 'Lotna' is the name of the last Cavalry Horse to charge in WWII against the might of the German tanks - image copyright of the Filmoteka Narodowa

IMDB ref:

I grew up on the knowledge that the Polish Cavalry charged the German tanks - it took the late great Wajda to create a film about this saddest, bravest and most patriotic of actions in World War II by Poles defending their country. I wonder if 'Lightning' might not have been a better translation for use in this context.
