Storyline

The main character is the manager of a sport club, nicknamed "Teddy Bear" by his friends and acquaintances. One day he is detained at the border just as his sport team is off to a tournament - somebody has torn out a few pages from his passport. It occurs to him that perhaps his ex-wife has done so to get her hands on their joint account in a London bank. Therefore, he has to get to London as soon as possible in order to transfer the money to a different bank. The solution is a movie, made by his friend. The script requires a double role, thus the search for a character is announced. The double has to apply for the passport, and that is solved through a girlfriend who agrees to play dope's new fiancée. At the engagement party he is slipped a drug, and Teddy Bear runs off to the airport with the false passport. On the plane, however, he meets his ex-wife...

Great movie - a must-see
3 November 2004 | by (Warsaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

If you live in the USA or Western Europe, you probably cannot realize how the life was beyond the Iron Curtain. Here is the answer. This movie is a comedy, so some things are exaggerated, however, not much. This is a story about people living in socialism. You can see a tree of human dependencies, everyone has someone who is under him, and someone, whom he is afraid of. No-one is going to do anything, only when it gives him profits. No-one is going to make a decision, everyone needs instructions to act. This might be not understandable for people from the West, but really is in Poland. The main character is a sport club president. He has lots of people in his hand, but one day his wife becomes a lover of some minister. She's trying to get money from their account in London. It is necessary to him to be the first. But he has his passport destroyed (it was almost impossible to get a new one in those times), so he finds another way to get the money. He will use all people he can to reach his goal.
