Mid-life crisis, post-communistic reality - these two don't mix...
Adas is a film director. As he says that, he has always been "the second". In everything. He lives in the shadow of his older brother and desperately wants to make a change in his life. Actually, being in his position, everyone would want that - unsuccessful marriage, bad childhood and now - no professional success...
In the first scene we see Adas in the morgue. It is then, when he takes us on a tour through his sad life.
The movie title ("Nothing funny") is a bit ironic. Adas' life is full of hilarious events, yet for him this is not as funny, as for a third person. The picture is enjoyable to watch, yet one would need some insight into the reality of Poland in the very early 1990's to understand all the jokes.
Above all remember: this is not how real life in Poland looks :D
