Any good Polish movies that are not drama/ war ??

I find that a lot of Polish movies are drama/ war/ religion oriented... go figure eh?

I'm in the mood to watch a good Polish movie mostly for to improve my language skills, but I am interested in a comedy/ thriller type. Also I'd prefer if the movie was relatively new and not from the 90s or even before that, maybe post 2000s or even post 2005. Animated films are also ok, as long as they are good, eg. Toy Story was pretty decent.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Seksmisja (imdb.com/title/tt0088083/) is old movie, but I'm sure you will like it anyway :)

Wesele, it was made about 2004 I think, and it's a hilarious insight into rural Polish culture (it contains a wedding, violence, sex, and all the vodka you could ever wish for).

Hi, I'm looking for Polish children's movies or TV series, especially from the PWL era. Something light like the Czech "Arabela" or "Spuk unterm Riesenrad" from the DDR. Thanks in advance!

There were many, it might take a while. But how about narrowing down your request? You mentioned Arabela. Do you want a series about magic, wizards and such stuff?

I recently saw "Rozdrodze Café", made round about the mid-'00, and enjoyed it very much:-) It explored sexual relationships quite candidly, I must say.

Especially nice to see the (in-)famous hand 'kiss' among millenials from fairly middle-class backgrounds and not only the province of either the very old or high-ranking dignitary types!

^yes wizards are OK. But even movies/serials where one can see a typical commie mieszkanie (panelaks) (I hate Modernism in architecture but I like commie flat neighborhods with lots of open green space)

And some more like Pierścień i róża, Pan Samochodzik (based on several books by Nienacki), Janka or Podróż za jeden uśmiech

Then perfect for you will be a brilliantly humorous series Czterdziestolatek - 40 yo man. There are 20 episodes of the first season, made in 1970s, they regularly appear and vanish from youtube due to copyrights, currently you can see 11 - 19.

Anybody here seen "Zmroz oczy"? As I recall, it was a mystery story with a rather involved plot, but I think it involved what we in the States call a cold case. Curious as to feedback:-)

That`s interesting, never heard of this film before, so you managed to surprise me, point for you. As I am reading the reviews now, it was a good one, aimed at intelligent audiences.

Probably you haven't because, as another poster once pointed out, but I being too slow to pick up on the correction, the film's proper title should read "ZmrUz oczy"LOL

Indeed, I watched this directly from a friend of ours who brought it back from Poland as a sort of anniversary gift. Therefore, it had no subtitles, and so, I was translating it for my wife who doesn't understand Polish, yet is interested in foreign cinema:-)

A nice and needed change from WWII stuff and a tense hunt through the Polish countryside, as the young boy traces the events leading up to the opening scenes.
