A Polish comedy about some backwards country folks

"From the writer of Let's Make a Grandson (Zrobmy Sobie Wnuka) comes a Polish comedy about some backwards country folks. Stasio Tuchala (Roman Klosowski) finds himself in a predicament after his sister leaves for America. She used to do the household work and farm chores that Stasio doesn't have any experience with. Stasio's two friends decide to help him friend a woman by writing an advertisement (hence the title of this movie, Attractive Male Seeking Woman...).
Stasio's friends, Waclaw (Andrzej Grabowski) and Henryk (Marek Perepeczko) are country bumpkins that spend most of their day drinking on the bench in front of the general store. Both Grabowski and the late Perepeczko are great actors that add a lot of humor to the movie. This is one of the last movies Perepeczko stared in; he is best known as playing the leading role in the 1973 TV series Janosik.
To balance this pair, there are two middle-age women who both have their eye on Stasio. They sit and gossip just like Waclaw and Henryk. A couple of the dialogues they have with each other are hilarious and rank among the best scenes in the movie.
There are also several sub-plots, which remotely connects together with the larger story. For instance, there is a longhaired young man who envisions he is in the Wild West. He doesn't say a word in the entire film and uses gestures to communicate. He, along with the other subplots, may add a bit of suspense to the overall story.
Attractive Male Seeking Woman... (Atrakcyjny Pozna Pania...) is the directorial debut of Marek Rebacz. It is possible that there is a connection between this film and Let's Make a Grandson. Tuchala was also the last name of the young woman who went to the city to visit her relatives in Let's Make a Grandson. Of course, Marek Rebacz wrote both of the screenplays and it could be purely a coincident.
Laugh a Lot!

"I've been watching a few Polish movies lately just to see if I remember any Polish from my long past childhood. This was the best movie so far. It really is very funny. All the other movies I saw were long and mostly boring, but this is worth watching for enjoyment. You don't have to understand the language; it has subtitles. The characters are a hoot and the acting is really good."
