Mini state
16 April 2000 | by (Norwich, Enland) – See all my reviews

Actors, director and all other people involved in the making of this film, create, together, a completely realistic simulation of the rise to power of certain fractions within a state, their increasing greed, deposing of opponents, an allegory to many of the realities of 'Communist' rule in Poland. The main character, who eventually takes power of the boat, arrives on it with no tickets, and gains a position by mistake, but is still able to use it to form a kind of politburo, and then a dictatorship.

The film manages to do all this whilst being a hilarious comedy, some of the humour could perhaps be difficult for non-Polish viewers to comprehend. Not that much ACTUALLY goes on on the boat, but what goes on can easily be related to external events, and because of the way it is acted, this is a film that never gets boring, against all odds. If this film had gained widespread international fame and distribution, it would probably gain cult status all over the world, and be treated as one of the best films of all time, as it is in Poland.
