Jerzy Stuhr--one of Poland's most beloved actors--wrote and directed this charming comedy that caters to his image as an innocent caught in a cynical world. Stuhr plays Gustav, a Krakow professor roped into showing a visiting Swedish professor around town. The randy Swede soon tires of Gustav's dull dissertations on Polish heroes, suggesting they spend their time on less lofty pursuits--women. Though shy, Gustav eventually calls Isa, an old girlfriend from his distant past who was writing a dissertation on the mating habits of geese. While Isa is not quite what the Swede had in mind, Gustav sees his old flame through the rose-colored glasses of time. "This amusing, personal pic benefits from a lightly ironic touch" (
). In Polish with English subtitles.
