Some women look for love in all the wrong places when it is right in front of their nose. Even worse, some gals waste their time and energy with someone that is just a plain satyr in disguise. Randka w ciemno (Blind Date) is a story about the difficulties in finding love from a woman's point of view.
Majka (Katarzyna Maciag) is a cute young woman, but awfully dumb when it comes to judging guys. She is broken hearted over an older man named Cezary (Bogoslaw Linda) that dumped her for another woman. Sure, Cezary was married, but her positive outlook overlooked such things. Majka's friends want to help her out so they enter her into a dating game show. Lucky Majka is not only selected to be on the show out of the other applicants, but is even chosen by the guy out of the two other women. Their prize is a week-long trip to France on their blind date. It turns out the contestant is someone she already knows and doesn't like as he sets off her creep alert, so maybe she isn't so lucky after all. But Majka being who she is, starts to get charmed by him on their trip together and opens herself up to trouble.
I was able to correctly predict what will happen by only watching the first five minutes, so it is absolutely impossible to give away the plot more than the film itself does. Even the poster art for the film (DVD case cover) also gives away the story, but there is also something misleading there, so at least that builds some false expectations to throw us off a bit.
Although the package considers this movie a comedy, I do not. There was almost nothing in the movie I found funny and I only lightly chuckled once (and the person I watched it with didn't laugh at all). I would consider this a romance and a story about a woman looking for love. Overall, I think most of the story is tragic and Majka's story is a very realistic one. Her tale is so sad because there really are some women that are a poor judge of character and end up with someone who is not who they appear to be (and some guys are just so devious that they do not hesitate to do whatever it takes to fool others). But beyond the tragic part, there is the positive side to the story that you will just have to find out for yourself.
