Yes, I know, it's supposed to be a comedy. Still, I cannot quite understand what the message of this film is, if any. Perhaps it's only meant to offer us a glimpse into the mundane lives of the three characters, entertaining us with a plethora of often unrelated humorous vignettes.
The packaging of the film is flawless: it is well edited and very well photographed. It entertains on the outside, but in my opinion fails to go further and actually evoke more than a few chuckles. I was confused about the direction of the plot (actually, its absence) and I felt it was only meant to make us laugh .... and only that. The fragmentation of the film never gives us a chance to connect with the characters and so after a while they just become idle players of this feature length comic skit.
Perhaps one should be a little more versed in the current (and past) social and political aspects of contemporary Poland to be able to relate to this film on a deeper level.
An OK video rental on a boring weekend evening.
