Storyline

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.

Trivia

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.

No major improvement since the fall of communism
7 May 2007 | by trixie650203See all my reviews

I rarely comment on films but I have to respond to the American commenter who said that this film was an utter confusion. It's no wonder that someone from Texas does not understand this way of life, but we here, after 50 years of communism do understand it. Drinking, materialism, corruption, bribery, blackmailing, rape etc. These were the basics of our lives for decades and it is so sad to see that there is no improvement in Poland after the fall of the Iron Curtain. The events depicted are very similar to those that would take place in rural Hungary. The movie was quite amusing but very sad at the same time.
