Movie Reviews

One of the best Machulski comedies!
PolishKnight | Falls Church, VA USA | 03/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very watchable film for westerners. Most of the comedy is timeless (poking fun at women's lib and the gender wars) but there's also a lot to observe in the background such as Polish culture and 1970/80's sci-fi effects and fashion. Much of the filming was done at the famous Wieliczka salt mine. There's a big deal made about the nudity but it's mostly casual and there's no sex either. Imagine Benny Hill meeting Dark Star."
THE Polish movie
Pranay Manocha | London, UK | 08/31/2005

"This is the holy grail of Polish cinema. talk to any Polish person and Sex Misje is the movie they will laugh and shout about! There is a reason and for the extra enthusiasm, this movie is best watched with a Polish companion, who can provide intermittent bits of trivia.

This movie, is not only superbly funny, the acting and the direction are superb. Of course, this is not the usual blonde or college flick comedy and it would never please fans of that brand of comedy. This is a serious, good hearted, superbly simple movie and its best seen through the Communist\Polish lens of a long long time ago.
An Eastern European movie that's not boring?!?!

"This is one of the best foreign movies I have ever seen. It's certainly the best Polish movie--I wanted to see the Colors Trilogy, but Blue put me to sleep and I didn't want to watch the others. Two men are are cryogenically frozen, expecting to be revived in a few years. But when they come to, it's the year 2044 and they find themselves in an underground world, were all the males on the planet have been destroyed in some kind of war, and all the women are stoic man-haters. The music is really weird and funny. The science-fiction settings, technology, special effects, and costumes brought to mind a charming mixture of Doctor Who and rollerdurby. It's a comedy, but a scene when the two men run into a group a children who haven't been brainwashed yet is kind of sad. What else? Oh yes, I suppose it can be seen symbolically as rule under the Soviet Union. Speaking of ungodly repressive dicatorships, the Colors trilogy received a bunch of film awards, and this movie goes unnoticed."
Best Polish comedy

"Poland after Solidarity, before perestroika: feminism and socialism, brilliant fantasie and excellent humor. Too brave for it's time, the movie was not shown in the Soviet Union and most of the Eastern European countries until late 80s, and even then came out as a censored edition :-)"
