It is a romantic comedy which is a combination of a charming and moving story of When Harry Met Sally with the craziness, humor and enchantment of Love Actually. It is a positive and optimistic story of two thirty-something people who are made for each other, Matylda and Bartek, who are needing and looking for love and closeness, but who are constantly missing each other in the course of their lives.

First at all I'd like to explain why I've given 8 to it: I did not compare it to the romantic comedies as a genre, but to Polish romantic comedies. In comparison with all the "Tylko mnie kochaj" and "Ja wam pokażę" it is a very very good film.
Pluses: -a few brilliant and funny dialogs, -nice Spanish music, -way Marcin Dorocinski plays ( although at the very end he becomes a bit like a hero of the Bollywood film but I am aware of the fact that it must have been in the screenplay), -no breasts and no Swietokrzyski Bridge (which recently are both common in Polish films).
Minuses: -the improbability of the whole plot - at the end it turns out that everyone is somehow connected to another, -Magdalena Rozdzka in some moments is a bit too "artificial" and her heroine behaves in an improbable way. Moreover, if you live off making angels, you don't live in such a big apartment in Warsaw and generally, you don't dress like that -it would be nice to develop some threads (like of Bartek'mother, or Matylda pretending to be pregnant). - the ending takes a bit from "Love and Other Disasters" and the film seems to be a bit cut in the middle of the scene.
But generally, it is a nice sweet film for a romantic date or for a ladies night with a few bottles of wine.
