Knowing and loving Cezary Pazura as the "Kiler", I was very much looking forward to this movie. And I sure wasn't disappointed, since "Kariera Nikosia Dyzmy" is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. This story of a loser who becomes - by the purest of chances - the Prime Minister of Poland is filled with funny characters and hilarious comments. Lines such as "Ja pana dymam!" or "Blizniaki czterojajowe", "Karmilam kaczky" or "To jest samochod" are truly unforgettable and funny even after I've seen the movie seven times. The story itself is an adaptation of a 20s novel and the creators of this movie deserve credit for transforming the plot and characters into early capitalist Poland of the 90s and doing it perfectly. Characters such as the twins, the ministers and especially the businessman were to be found all over Eastern Europe those days. Last but not the least, the music of the Polish band "Elektryczne gitary" is brilliant. If you are looking for a reason to learn Polish, this movie is definitely worth it. 9 stars out of 10!
