Storyline

Set at the turn of the century, the story concerns a Polish poet living in Cracow who has decided to marry a peasant girl. The wedding is attended by a heterogenous group of people from all strata of Polish society, who dance, get drunk and lament Poland's 100-year-long division of Poland under Russia, Prussia, and Austria. The bridegroom, a painter friend, and a journalist each in turn is confronted with spectres of Polish past. In the end a call to arms is called but turns out to be a hoax.

Trivia

The famous rumor has it that during a film festival Andrzej Wajda was approached by the legendary director Elia Kazan, who asked him where he had found such a wonderful writer. Wajda was amused because the play "Wesele" is one of immortal classics of Polish literature, well-known to every school kid in Poland, but considered difficult to appreciate by foreigners. It was written by the renowned Cracovian painter and writer Stanislaw Wyspianski in 1901. See more »

Magnificent picture by the greatest Polish director
5 July 2001 | by (Warsaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Wesele" is a magnificent picture made by the greatest Polish director, Wajda who was given honorary Oscar in 2000. It is made with passion and great aritistic vision like a colourful painting. The screenplay is based on the drama written by Stanis³aw Wyspiañski, one of the greatest Polish writers, who lived in Cracow at the end of 19th century and who participated in wedding which he described in his play. The film is excelent, thanks to the cinematography by Witold Sobociñski, music by Stanis³aw Radwan, and great actors like Daniel Olbrychski (Bridegroom), Franciszek Pieczka (Czepiec) and others.
