(I changed pictures

Cooking pics? Good! :):):)

Yes..... and no.

Without the name of the film and basic knowledge of the plot it is impossible to guess that double context.

Yes..... and no.

There is more than one father?

Can you get the name of the adult actor, too???

He does actually look familiar but I will have think about this.

Interestingly the whole film is up on youtube and it's worth a watch (though it is a downer).

if you want to fish around on youtube the movie is from somewhere between 1959-1964....

He looks familiar but you can`t recognise him coz he was still young then. He is Leon Niemczyk and the film is President`s Visit from 1961. A small boy lives with his father and stepmother. He feels neglected and starts daydreaming - he imagines meeting Mr President who looks like his father but is caring and considerate. Niemczyk plays two roles - dad and Mr President.

I watched that film only once, in 1979, I perfectly remember when and where and what other people in the room were doing behind me. I could never forget it since then. Somehow it got imprinted in my memory for ever. Was it because I believed I was like that boy when younger???

That is why I immediately recognised that picture by maf.

President`s Visit from 1961

Yes, Odwiedziny Prezydenta

As I mentioned the whole thing is on youtube but it is a bit of a downer - no happy end..... but worth watching nonetheless.

No... communism was awful. But I've always loved propaganda art even when I hate the philosophy behind it.

The movie in question is really fun in a weird way.

Yes, crazy times produced crazy films.

Two Brigades from 1950:

People's Poland in the late 1940s. Actors from a certain theater are preparing to stage a socialist realist Czechoslovak play entitled Karhan's Grinder Brigade . For most of the old generation actors, this repertoire is foreign and incomprehensible, for most of the young ones, on the contrary - they are full of enthusiasm. However, these two extreme attitudes cause conflicts in the team. The director decides to visit a nearby factory with his team to observe the realities of art. It turns out that the problems contained in the play and occurring in the acting group are identical to those in the factory. This is a general generational conflict between old workers and young rationalizers. However, because both old and young actors, despite their differences, are faithful to the idea of ​​art and want to put on a good performance despite everything, the premiere brings great success. In turn, old and young factory workers invited to rehearsals and the premiere can easily find characters from their factory in the roles played by the actors. The show makes them think, they begin to understand that the idea of ​​efficient work based on competition should stand above divisions.

. but worth watching nonetheless.

Not sure I would want to watch it if it's really depressing.....maybe I'll give Two Brigades a go.

You are saying it now. But earlier you said

but I will have think about this.

which in British diplomacy meant: I have no idea and don`t expect me to guess it correctly.
Shall I teach you how Brits use their famous English understatements? :):):):)

Sorry, according to johnny`s claims, I spent too much time in Britain to have problems with such basic message. :):):)

Not really. I've said this before with other riddle questions if I'm not immediately sure of the answer.

I spent too much time in Britain

Yes, you're practically a native :):)

No, like a native.
Or
Like A Native Virgin. :):):)

But certainly not naive!
