Audience Reviews for The Wedding (Wesele)
Since time immemorial, filmmakers have imagined the uiltimate banquet or party sequence. The irony is that Andrzej Wajda has already nailed it with his film, "The Wedding," about a rambunctious wedding reception in Poland in 1900 that consumes most of the movie's running time. As much as the heightened emotions on display might have to do with the near toxic levels of vodka consumed, a more probable cause is the way people act when they finally have something to celebrate, leading to an all-time classic hangover whose effects will be felt for quite some time. This is also at a time when there is no independent Polish state, Poland having been long consumed by other empires. Just as there is as much foreshadowing to the future of nationalism, there are just as many references to the past, and not just in the way the characters are dressed. One part of the future is the fact that the bride(Ewa Zietek) and groom(Daniel Olbrychski) are from different social classes, a fact once thought unimaginable.
