Gabriela Maria Schmeide,
A movie done to show us differences between humans and nationalities of course. It is a very special relationship Polish and Germans seem to have according to this movie. Beneath the surface there is something brewing. And a movie like this does scratch the surface. It never gets too deep, but still touches a few themes, that might be considered too hot or politically incorrect.
But that's were the movie is interesting. When it is not playing it safe, but opts to show us the humans behind the facade. And of course gives us things to talk about. It's no wonder, that the directors German and Polish! Touching both sides and making it as even as they can. Though of course this could also be considered a weakness. Not having a clear view on things that is. If you want that, you would be wrong here. The comedy is also hit and miss, but still engaging enough to be liked
