Interesting but boring
10 October 2019 | by rps-2See all my reviews

This was a first for me. I never had seen a Polish film. It is well done with some nice settings and excellent cinematography. But it grinds on and on and on... There is predictable sex and unseeimngly harsh discipline as inexperienced waiters serve stereotyped upper class diners. (Interesting this was done during the "workers paradise" phase of Poland's turbulent history. ) Nor is it clear in which era the story is set. Judging from the women's fashion, it seems to be somewhere between 1925 and 1935. Worth a look if you're interested in what a Polish movie looks like. But a challenging or entertaining evening it ain't!
