Ziem, that`s wonderful explanation but you forgot to name the character! Yes, being Poles, we understand each other without uttering one word, but what about others? :):)
Nikodem Dyzma, a jobless man who accidentally becomes a top economist and renowned respected politician in pre-war Poland, from the TV series: Nikodem Dyzma`s Career.
Did you know that Tadeusz Dołęga-Mostowicz was not liked by political class in pre-war Poland?
Yes, they even sent rogues to beat him up in the street.
book had impressed me a lot at that time! So I'd like to advise everybody: you must certainly read the book, if you liked film
I read the book several times, also to kids. Very funny.
