Watch it! Wake a masochist in you!
14 March 2006 | by wujekromanSee all my reviews

This cute little film amongst many other nonsenses shows us a woman who manages to build a beautiful house by the lakeside for about $10,000 (or was it less). She also has no problems with reacting on surprising and quite serious events with a smart-ass remarks (which is more understandable considering the script was adapted from a book, but doesn't excuse it being quite unconvincing). Our brave heroine falls madly in love with a piece of wood (which is Artur Zmijewski, hello), who's not even able to speak normally but instead generates some whispery-murmuring sounds. This "best Polish romantic comedy to date" also contains some quite stupid scenes like the one in which the lady walks through her office with a big grin on her face (she's just fallen in love) and EVERYBODY stands up and stares at her jealously, or the one with the silly camera slide, beginning with the lake surface being upside-down on the screen (somebody please explain me the sense of the idea, apart of "hey, we can do such trick" message). Be also prepared for the hopelessly stupid ending scene. To sum it up - highly recommended for sci-fi, spoof, soap opera and Danuta-Stenka-who-chuckles-all-the-time fans.
