The story is an odyssey of a little man through Poland of 1930 to 1950. It shows his attempts to cope with a changing world which seems to have no place for him. He has no consciousness of any kind but is always on the verge of turning into a more coherent human being, only to be slapped down. It begins with the hero's childhood. Then comes the first love marred by his unwilling involvement in fascict politics, him being taken for a Jew because of his nose. Later he decides to join the army to charm the girl, but arrives too late for any fighting. He is arrested by entering German troops while he dresses in officer's uniform and mistakenly sent to POW camp as an officer. Written by Polish Cinema Database <>

Munk was certainly an original...
26 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The tone of the humor in this remarkable film (a delicious treat for any aficionados of central European cinema, especially), is remarkably like some Ealing comedies I've seen ...'Kind Hearts and Coronets' and 'The Lavender Hill Mob', come readily to mind. The director must have seen a bit of American slapstick & french farce, of the 1920's-30's, or at least digested a few choice examples to elaborate upon. Not wanting to give away the plot,or try to define the movie in any tangible way, I find myself at a loss for words. See for yourself, it's to unique to risk selling short by focusing on Favorite Scenes, or trying to figure where it stands in relation to Polish cinema as a whole. I don't recall feeling so turned on my head, and disoriented by a comedy, since Kon Ichikawai's 'Fires on the Plain'.
