Polish films in British cinemas

21 May

Our local news website Polnews informed us that we have another chance to watch a Polish film in British cinemas. This time it’s a romantic comedy with Maciej Stuhr called “Planeta singli” (“The planet of singles”).planet singli

What is it about?

He is one of the top celebrities in the country: a fast-talking TV host, who can joke his way out of any situation. Women want to be with him, men want to be like him. He is looking for a new topic to discuss in his popular talk-show. She is a teacher at a musical school – a timid girl looking for Mr. Perfect on an internet dating site. He will help her realise her potential and teach her how to recognise various types of men for what they are, she will teach him what real life is about. The show will become a huge hit. It seems they are destined to fall in love and be together, but one day she actually does meet Mr. Perfect on the net. (source: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5127398/)

Watching movies helps you learn Polish. It’s useful because you get to hear lots of slang and cool expressions – it’s how people really talk. Also, you should be able to enjoy it, having visual clues to aid your understanding, even if you don’t understand every last thing the characters are saying.

Enjoy!
