This movie has exactly the same title as Wesele (1973), yet there is no connection between those productions whatsoever. The older one is a screening of a play (of the same title) set at the beginning of the 20th century, while this one is an unrelated original script set in the modern-day Poland. Still, many viewers were confused by the title and refused to watch the new production thinking it was a remake or another screening of the well-known play. See more »
I rarely comment on films but I have to respond to the American commenter who said that this film was an utter confusion. It's no wonder that someone from Texas does not understand this way of life, but we here, after 50 years of communism do understand it. Drinking, materialism, corruption, bribery, blackmailing, rape etc. These were the basics of our lives for decades and it is so sad to see that there is no improvement in Poland after the fall of the Iron Curtain. The events depicted are very similar to those that would take place in rural Hungary. The movie was quite amusing but very sad at the same time.
