Robert Wolanski comes all the way from Australia to Poland in order to find a wife. He falls for a girl from the world-famous dance group "Mazowsze". As she doesn't share his feelings, Robert decides to kidnap her.
This film is classified as a musical comedy - an oversimplification. There is music from the Mazowsze Song & Dance ensemble in the background most of the time, well chosen to fit the action. But there is also music in the figurative sense of the word in the dialogs (by Stanislaw Dygat, also well known for his novels). The reason is the enchanting performance by Elzbieta Czyzewska as Hanka. She is well accompanied by Wieslaw Golas as Robert and in smaller roles by Edward Dziewonski, Wieslaw Michnikowski and Jan Kobuszewski (all stars of the Dudek Cabaret). From the moment we see Hanka and Robert dancing a polonaise in the Gdansk City Hall, we wish the two of them well. We suffer when misunderstandings which are not their doing appear and pile up - but we continue to hope. Stanislaw Bareja was a master of comedy, there are now annual festivals devoted to his films and those of his contemporary followers. This is one of Bareja's earlier films, and already his talent shines.
