    Brief synopsis

    Via a bravura 16-minute single-take opening tracking shot, we are introduced in media res to Andrzej (The Queen’s Gambit’s Marcin Dorociński) and wife Malgorzata (Maja Ostaszewska), a rich couple having a very bad day indeed: their son has just deserted his fiancée at the altar. As the wedding band tunes up in a swanky hotel ballroom, Andrzej decides to go ahead with the reception. After all, everything is paid for and a lot of wedding guests have come from afar, so why not? But then Wanda (Izabela Kuna) and Tadeusz (Adam Woronowicz)—the working-class parents of the bride-not-to-be—show up, determined to extract their pound of flesh…
    In Kuba Michalczuk’s fast-paced, darkly funny directorial debut, the vodka flows, revelations occur, and chaos ensues as Michalczuk’s constantly roving camera reveals—and justly skewers—the hypocrisies and greedy desires of rich and poor alike. It’s a hoot!
