THE WEDDING

WOJCIECH SMARZOWSKI

Blushing bride Kasia (Tamara Arciuch) is relieved when her wedding passes with only minor hitches – such as the best man dropping the rings – but the celebrations have only just begun; before the party is over, the happy couple and their families will encounter death, divorce, mutilation, excessive drinking (of course), sexual misdemeanours, exploding toilets, and a bride increasingly unsure of her decision. Chief among the gallery of rogues on display is the bride’s father (Kinopolis guest Marian Dziędziel) whose efforts to give his daughter the perfect day cause the escalation into chaos and tricky situations. 

While the film sounds like a mainstream comedy romp, and it is definitely very funny, the humour throughout is pitch black in a biting satire on Polish social traditions.

This film is screening as part of Kinopolis: 7th Polish Film Festival (November 8th – 11th).
