During the 1655 war between Protestant Sweden and Catholic Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth some Polish-Lithuanian nobles side with Swedish king Charles X Gustav while others side with the Polish king Jan Kazimierz.
This is a very underestimated film by Machulski, people call it a comedy which isn't funny, and that's partially right - it is rather bitter. It laughs at the state of Polish cinematography as well as several other aspects of life in modern Poland, but both Hollywood and artistic cinema also get their portions. Reportedly this movie didn't bring him many friends in the world of movie business. One more thing is that it is perhaps the first (and only?) Polish film so far to have several decent computer effects. This is because they are more of the videoclip/commercial quality (in Poland they can make VERY good commercials with CGI, but a decent movie is still to be awaited); they aren't meant to simulate real things, but they are jokes, visions, parodies etc. They were made by the Platige Image studio which has the Oscar-nominated Tomasz Baginski in it.
