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...

Goofs

At the London bank Ochodzki tries to cash a check, but the clerk says he's on strike. Ochodzki doesn't understand, so he makes a call to a shop assistant for her to interpret. In the next scene there is the black girl saying "Let me speak to that guy", and the next one shows Ochodzki saying "You speak English? I can't figure out what the goddamn bloke's talking to me". Both scenes seem to be reversed in cutting process. See more »

Funny, light satire of Poland under communism
4 October 2011 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Apparently quite beloved in its native Poland, this is a very amusing, sometimes over the top satire of life under the bureaucracy of communism.

The president of a soccer club tries to hold things together when his wife destroys his passport just before he has to leave a trip to play in the UK, so she can beat him there and steal some money they stashed away.

Everyone is playing and coning everyone else, with sometimes unpredictable results.

Not a great film, but a breezy enjoyable one.
