Maybe not everyone is going to agree with me but I would describe the majority of Polish ciema as depressing, hard-content, serious. For some movies you really have to be Polish to get what's going on, you have to know the ins and outs of the polish language and culture to really feel the movie. Foreigners often cannot handle our movies, subtitles aren't enough you know.

From those "hard" movies I would rate high the following titles: Dlug, Dzien Swira (all three episodes); Symetria; Seksmisja; Sami Swoi; Skazany na Bluesa; Samotnosc w Sieci ...

Samotnosc w Sieci ...

I read the book.
As for your other remarks, I have to agree. Polish conema should lighten up a bit.

I started reading Samotnosc w sieci ( never finished) but I didn't like it much.

I quite liked dzien Swira....maybe i am bit weird?

Your definitely not weird. It's the best Polish comedy made after 1989, if not in the entire history of Polish cinema!! :)

I am so behind. I only saw Vinci. It was OK. I made a note of the movies mentioned and rent them. See what i'm "missing' :)

There was a polish movie festival in Chicago last November and I went to see one movie. I don't remember the title, but it was a "mafia" movie. IT WAS HORRIBLE! Sorry.

I did not want to see any other one after that.

The other day I watched Karol: A Man Who Became Pope. It was at the Polish Film Festival in L.A. but I rented the DVD. It was the best movie I have seen in a long time. I wasn't expecting it to be so good. I thought it would focus on the Catholic religion but it wasn't like that at all. It focused more on events and it was very dramatic.

With Fire and Sword

you see I liked it very much, because I knew the story, I loved the music... but for example for my spanish friends it was quite hard to realize who was Skrzetuski, who Chmielnicki they confused difficult polish surnames...and as a result they frequently got lost.

But they liked the actors for example :-)

I also showed them Dlug (translating myself as I couldn't find a transalted version) and they really were fascinated.

I would really like to find seksmisja in english (I don't think there is a spanish version) no matter how many times I see it, I always laugh so much!

And "Lekarstwo na milosc" (the medicine for love) thiiiis isss great! It is based on Klin from Joanna Chmielewska....anybody has seen it? A little bit old but... such an eternal topic :-)

My favourites:
Poszukiwany, poszukiwana
Popiol i diament
Pan Wolodyjowski
Out of recent ones I liked "Jasminum" (with Gajos ) and "Pogoda na jutro" (very funny! with Stuhr)

I would really like to find seksmisja in english (I don't think there is a spanish version) no matter how many times I see it, I always laugh so much!

I happen to have english subtitles file for it, if that is what you need, let me know.

I would say the best Polish films I have seen are from 70's-80's and from Lodz Film School directors. To name a few:
czlowiek z marmuru-wajda
and also la double vie de veronique-kieslowski.
i would also love any movie whose soundtrack is made by zbigniew preisner.

I saw Polisz Kicz Projekt, director Mariusz Pujszo. That's type of irony that I prefer, kurka wodna. :) Is that film well-known in Poland?

...and Cezary Pazura! I saw just 'Ajlawju' and 'Nienasycenie'. He's great! Comediant and dramatic actor. In 'Nienasycenie' He makes three roles and all are different. What do you think of him?
