A heartwarming comedy about tradation

""Legacy of Steel" is a heartwarming comedy about a father, his inevitable death and the future of his children. Tradition holds that a grandfather must pass on the family's saber to a grandson, but our elderly father's son is unmarried, and seems uninterested in women. The father, along with four friends from the war, make it their life mission to help his son find a wife. The four men are practically inseparable and their "conspiracy" activities make for great humor.
I loved the picturesque countryside, the wood fences and farm houses, icons of the rustic Polish country life, reminding me of farms I knew when I was in Poland. Between the music and the scenery, the film captures an essence of Polish culture.
I would highly recommend "Legacy of Steel" to anyone. It has excellent acting, a compelling story, and is hilarious. As in most films directed by Jan Jakub Kolski, Grazyna Blecka-Kolska, the director's wife, stars in the movie. This is not a film to overlook.
