"With a title like Tylko Mnie Kochaj (Just Love Me) you know it is going to be a love story. It borders on being a fairy tale story that shows the good life. Michal (Maciej Zakoscielny) has a good job, a fancy car, and even an apartment tiled with granite; but he doesn't have someone in his life that he loves or loves him. All of that changes when he is surprised one day to find a cute girl at his doorstep claiming to be his daughter.
Michal is in complete disbelief and shock at this seven-year-old girl's claim. She tells Michal that all she wants from him is that he "just love me." He agrees to take care of her for five days to get to know her better. His girlfriend isn't too thrilled with the whole situation. Michal quickly takes a liking to his daughter and they both have a lot of fun together. Michal also meets a woman named Julia at work and they strike up a connection.
A few parts of the movie are a little predictable, as are most romantic comedies. Tylko Mnie Kochaj has some pretty funny parts that make the movie fun. If you have been to Poland recently, you will appreciate the part where Michal is driving on the small road and passing cars like a maniac to get to his destination quicker, as this is exactly how it is nowadays.
Ryszard Zatorski, the director of Tylko Mnie Kochaj, has gained popularity with his romantic comedies. Agnieszka Grochowska, who is an actress I particularly enjoy and think has a promising career, plays the role of Julia. There is even a short clip from Ryszard Zatorski's earlier film Nigdy w Zyciu! edited into this one giving Artur Zmijewski and Danuta Stenka a short cameo. Tylko Mnie Kochaj doesn't have any violence or nudity so it may be appropriate for all crowds.
