"Rejs", or in its English title "A Trip Down the River", is a very silly movie, that packs lots of funny and absurd moments in its short running time.
The story is basically what the English title says: some people on a trip down the river. And nothing else. Well, you have a couple of people that get into the ship for free and one of them gets in charge of entertainment, culture and art. And then all the people on the ship decide to prepare a party for the captain.
That is basically an excuse for making fun of everything, from Polish movies to brooding intellectuals. There is a very funny moment when one of the characters comments about how bad Polish movies are, in which nothing happens and you can have a character just smoking and looking one side first, then the other, while all the while he is actually doing it, just smoking, looking at one side, then the other, and explaining what he is doing. It is all in the absurd, parody side of humor, all small vignettes. The acting or the direction, as the plot, are just an excuse to try to make people laugh.
Nonetheless, even if it is just a little bit over one hour, it has some empty moments and some stretched ones, where the viewer's attention may wander a little bit.
