Delightful, simple, worth it.
16 January 2005 | by ATysiancSee all my reviews

The movie has a combination of elements: lots of humor, a little suspense, and a little action. This is about life in a rural Polish town and how it is run… not by the mayor, or the police chief, but the priest. There is a heart-warming "boy meets girl" element. The title, an old idiom which translates to "safe and comfortable" really says it all, but the funny and harried action in the film certainly is not as peaceful as the title might imply. What is really amazing is that most of the cast is from the Bialystok Puppet Theater, and for most of the actors, this is their one an only movie.

My thumb is up! Enjoy!
