Based on a report by Piotr Krysiak of the same title, the film directed by Maria Sadowska remained at the forefront of Box Office for six weeks, including four in first place. Emi is a young ambitious girl who has been dreaming about a big world for years. Whenever the opportunity arises, she jumps into its modes without hesitation, becoming an exclusive escort. Soon it is she who, at the invitation of Arab sheikhs, begins to recruit Polish misses, celebrities, screen stars and models. However, this inaccessible, luxurious world will soon show its dark side … The race for the title of the most popular Polish film also found itself on the podium “Wedding reception” (premiered on April 23 in Canal + Premium, from April 24 in Canal + Online) by Wojciech Smarzowski. The latest film by one of the most uncompromising Polish directors closed the top ten of the biggest cinema hits of the year. Another bold production, after “Klera” and “Volhynia”, tells the parallel love stories of two couples living in different time lines. On the one hand, we observe the guests during a contemporary wedding party, set against the backdrop of personal dramas and conflicts. A bride in an advanced state of pregnancy watches her husband’s antics with concern, and her father faces business problems. At the same time, the senior of the Antoni family, in his memories of his youth, takes viewers to the second timeline. The story of his youthful love for a Jewish girl is intertwined with the present and reveals secrets hidden for years.
