Skirmish at Bender

This event took place today in 1713. Charles XII and his retinue fought off Ottoman troops until Charles tripped on his spurs and was captured. Unlucky. There was apparently a 1983 comedy called Kalabaliken i Bender sadly I can't find any clips. Anyone seen it?

Haha! I haven't ever heard of it but it is starring three of the country's biggest comedians at the time. Surely a masterpiece of historical accuracy. ;)
