Good Idea, Lukewarm Script, Week Direction
17 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sure this move looked better to the Polish audience but a lot of it doesn't translate so to speak to the non-Polish audience. It's hard to pinpoint one particular thing that would be the major flaw. I've found myself yawning several times and stopping. It has never built a momentum that would suck a viewer in. Also it lost a lot to petty political/nationalist jabs and on the other side it has never built a real, strong conflict that would have been plausible.

Say a real life, higher ranking Soviet officer could/would have unleashed a lot of havoc on a Pollack who was stealing his wife and it wouldn't need any nationalist jabs and a caricature of a "Russian officer" at all but could have had high level of drama ("Blue Sky" with Jessica Lange comes to mind). The infertility of the husband could have had some decent background story and that "he was kicked out of the space program due to infertility" is just plain lame.

Someone should do a full blown remake with US production in English and maybe with just a bit of Polish to spice it up, maybe just the song. And clean up petty politicking to make the movie stand on it's feet.

Svetlana Khodchenkova is the sole saving grace of this movie and has created two characters out of a thin air, against the lacking script/plot design and disoriented direction. The rest of the cast is just lame.
