Horrible
8 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie glorifies the worst stereotypes of migrants from eastern Poland: lazy, argumentative, unable to find consensus even with the closest neighbour. I myself cannot find anything funny in this kind of behaviour. What's real is not funny. Comedies rely on exaggeration, which Mis (Poland, 1980) is the best example of, but this one is not so much exaggerated. Fortunately there are better examples of Polish culture.

Suggested solution: recycle all copies.
