Wojnar is a wealthy man who is marrying off his beautiful daughter Kasia, in a small town in present day Poland. Wojnar had to bribe the groom with a fancy car, since Kasia was pregnant by another man. At the end of the ceremony, the car is delivered by a gangster, who immediately demands the promised money and the deed to land from Kasia's grandfather. Unfortunately grandpa is unwilling to let go of the land. Meanwhile each of the workers at the reception demand to be paid, so Wojnar, who is very reluctant to part with his money, tries to haggle and bribe his way out of all the situations. Written by
This movie has exactly the same title as Wesele, 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 »
WEDDING transforms a joyous occasion into a real 'Walk On The Wild Side". I am unfamiliar with Polish demographics, but I would imagine that, in America, the people depicted in the film would be called, "Hillbillies". And, by that I mean people who live in a remote, rural area in the South, often in the Appalachian (Or sometimes Ozark) Mountains, and therefore are isolated and somewhat out of touch with modern culture. In short, they would best be described as, "Rude, Crude, and Lewd". WEDDING is not funny unless you have a particularly diseased sense of humor. However, it is exceedingly twisted and perverse. Worth a look.
