"Mis" is a cult Polish comedy. The sequel, "Rozmowy kontrolowane", is not as good, but still delivers a lot of good laugh. "Rys", the third part of the trilogy, is not as good. But is it really bad as people claim? The story has no sense and the same situation we had in "Mis". Ryszard Ochodzki (played by Stanislaw Tym), the hero of the previous movies, has some serious problems with the mafia. He needs to give back 2 million euros. His friend Maria suggest him selling the land to a priest living near Suwalki. But Ryszard decides to trick the bank...
What is more, the movie has its moments. Scenario is full of jokes that may by understood only in Poland. The brilliant ones go in the pairs with weak ones, as well disgusting. But you still laugh. Acting is weak. Unfortunately, Tym is really old now and does not fit to the role of an aging playboy.
"Rys" wasn't accepted in Poland. It was a big screen hit, but received very bad reviews both by critics and the audience. The same situation was with "Mis". It took several years for this movie to become cult. May be "Rys" will be understand in the future?
