Fo those not living in any communist country , this movie might look like science fiction but it is very realistic albeit very funny. The plot is not that important as several scenes that are not related to the main action of the movie. I rate this movie very high , mainly because of those several scenes - masterpieces of the communism absurd. The actors do not dissapoint - I would single out Stanislaw Tym as an assistant director or Kazimierz Kaczor as a auto repair shop supervisor. But the biggest credit goes to Stanislaw Bareja, the director and screen writer (actually cowriter, the other one is Stanislaw Tym). The dialogs are fantastic and you will laugh and cry. I recommend this movie to everybody.
