This is about the sad affairs of the Common Market. Both of those who are in and those who are out. Out in more than one meaning are the Polish guest workers, picking strawberries, polishing glass cans and cleaning people's swimmingpools, without a reasonable pay. They are used, also a Polish girl with her daughter.
But those who are inside the market and the system are used in emotional ways. The fat divorced middle-aged man, are quickly losing value in the emotional/sexual class society we have in the West today. Yes, he goes to brothels and get sado-masochistic sex, but that doesn't mean he has any power. The fat man is a victim too. A victim of an truly inhuman society.
The Polish girl and the fat man get together in the end. And there seem to be some hope. Not of passion, but of acceptance and maybe even some kind of love after all. There seems to be nothing mean in their relationship.
