The Wedding Day

The Wedding Day


Wojciech Smarzowski

2021, 2 h 8 min

Under the guise of good fun a wedding covers up some bitter truths about us, Poles. The bride is dreaming of emigrating as she is observing her groom carry a torch for another woman. The bride’s father is also worried about more than just his daughter’s wedding chaos. The deal of his life is about to fall through. All this is being watched by the elder of the family who reminisces about the dramatic events from years ago when he met the love of his life. Emotions and exhaustion run high with every alcohol-flooded minute. The border between the now and then is gradually blurring. Secrets from the past come to the surface, winding up the spiral of evil which offers no escape.
