Did you hear the one about the Polish filmmaker who...
Polish Wedding is an amatuerish effort. Whereas a film like 'In the Company of Men" succeeds through an innovative idea, strong acting performances and passionate filmmaking, Polish Wedding has none of this.
Claire Danes is wonderful on-screen, yet miscast in most every film she's played. Gabriel Byrne continues a succession of non-descript performances in non-descript films. Good idea dressing up Lena Olin as a janitor, cleaning toilets in full makeup.
There's a nice screaming baby sequence in the 1st ten minutes that will drive you away quicker than the poorly used musical score.
Pass. Big time.
