| Cross-dressing butler in communist Poland of 1973
I saw this film then and i saw it yesterday and it is as funny as it was. This is very rare when it comes to the Polish comedies that was made at that time. Often they where so overloaded with symbols and metaphors placed there for the sake of the censorship that they were no more funny for someone who does not lived there.
This is a story of a thirty-something man and his struggle with a piece of paint he was responsible for at the art museum where he worked. The paint was accidentally taken and he was made responsible for the disappearance. He will be sentenced for some years jail, but manages to escape the police. He begins a voyage as a servant maid in the communist capital city of Warsaw. He also tries to recreate the painting by himself so he can return to his native work.
After all he figures out that he is much more better paid as a servant in Poland than an academic researcher he used to be...
