"Alternatywy 4" is cult polish comedy series, created by the state-of-the-art director Stanislaw Bareja. The series simply rocks and I personally laugh my a*ss off every time I watch it and so do friends of mine. However it may not be that funny nor even understandable for non-polish audience (however people from so called "East block" i.e. Russia, Czech, former BRD may find it funny from the scratch due to similar political situation of the 80s in their countries). If you are not familiar with the reality of those times of eighties, you got no clue what socialism was/is, you may find situations pictured in the movie a bit odd or even scary. You have to gain some knowledge about history of Poland to fully enjoy it, to understand all the situations and characters (the main housekeeper rocks ;-), as there're so many details that counts that you can simply overlook most of them. Even the movie title is a specific joke. The movie itself is killer to me and I get me a DVD set for sure. But if you want to fully enjoy this movie let me suggest to watch Alternatywy 4 with someone who would be able to explain you the situations and characters.
