Unlike most of the old-school Polish comedies this one is very disappointing. This is quite surprising taking into account that many very good Polish actors play here, like Leonard Pietraszak and Leon Niemczyk. The humour in the film is poor and dialogues are hardly interesting. This is mostly unexpected since leading character was played by well praised Edward Dziewonski. Unfortunately the main character was simply annoying to me. A good point goes for using the idea of a cliffhanger at the end, rarely used phenomenon in Polish comedies.
Plot: Zdzisław "Dzidziuś" Górkiewicz goes back to small town with his granddaughter. Suddenly he gets an opportunity to become a mayor there. Reluctant at the beginning he gets convinced to apply for the position. However, just before submitting his programme he falls asleep. During the dream he, instead of being allowed to present his programme, is being interrogated by the local council about his past from second world war period through the communist period. While getting verbally ambushed he encounters shocking news about his private life as well. After waking up from the nightmare he wants to leave, but his granddaughter convinces him to stay. He decides to go to the meeting with the council only to find out that situation from the dream is about to happen for real.
