Wojnar is a wealthy man who is marrying off his beautiful daughter Kaska, in a small town in present-day Poland. He had to bribe the groom with a fancy car, since Kaska had been pregnant with another man. At the end of the ceremony, the car is delivered by a gangster, who immediately demands the promised sum of money and the deed to land from Kaska's grandfather. Unfortunately, the grandpa is unwilling to let go of the land. Meanwhile each of the wedding reception workers demands to be paid, so Wojnar, who is very reluctant to part with his money, tries to haggle and bribe his way out of all the situations.Written by
This movie's title is exactly the same as the famous Andrzej Wajda's film Wesele (1973), which is an adaptation of a play by Stanislaw Wyspianski, set at the beginning of the 20th century. Although Smarzowski's film is based on his original screenplay, it's nevertheless a sharp critical look at Polish society with its numerous defects and flaws, just like the play and the older movie were.

A sad small glimpse of what seems to be authentic Polish life.
Very true to life.
Very Slavic - lots of drinking - very believable but boring and the film goes on way too long!!!!
The plot is plausible but uninteresting.
The characters seem real but very disconnected.
The characters are well acted but very two dimensional.
Photography goes from the film camera to the cheap video camera used by the videographer shooting the wedding.
The sound, music and other technical aspects are weak.
True vignette of eastern Europe.
Avoid this film it is endlessly repetitive.
