This one is an absolute must. Full of absurd humour, it provides an excellent insight into Poland of the early 70s. The movie features a group of people gathered on a cruise ship - a picture of the society in a nutshell. Some lines have entered the common Polish language. Most probably, however, it is quite hermetic and barely understandable outside of Poland.
