things are not always what they seem
12 August 2007 | by (Denton, Texas) – See all my reviews

The earlier commentator defined the essence of the plot: Dorota is pregnant; her parents Wladek and Jadwiga decide to buy her a husband for a quick marriage and a quick divorce as a cover up for the baby on the way. When it turns out that the young man Bronek who accepted the task has a criminal record, things look bleak and anything but comical. The first signal that this impression is not the whole story comes from a short conversation between Wladek and Bronek. Wladek says "We are not going to pay you for repairing the TV antenna on the roof, we did not ask you to do this work, you will not get one cent more". Bronek's reply is astonishing: "No problem. I never had a home". In addition to the main story interesting events unfold in the background. The local priest practices medicine, there is often a line of patients in front of his home - seen from the street. Jadwiga as the mayor considers this view a disgrace to her small town. She is powerless, however; the priest takes no money from his patients. The local police chief has amorous designs on Jadwiga. By an accident the criminal past of Bronek is revealed to a third party and blackmail begins. There is also a real criminal lurking in the dark - and a visit of an important dignitary from Wroclaw is a threat to the locals also. As befitting a comedy, various problems get solved eventually - but after delightful twists and turns.
