Films description

It Is Better to Be Beautiful and Rich

Poland 1993 / 95’

director:Filip Bajon
production:Studio Filmowe Dom, Dialog Studio, Telewizja Polska, Ukrtele Film, Manfred Durniok Produktion
sales:Filmoteka Narodowa
awards:Złota Kaczka 1993 - Best Actress

A feature film based on a true story. The turn of the 1980s and 1990s, times of great transformation of the Polish social and political landscape. One day a striking weaver learns that she has become the owner of the factory where she works. This miraculous change transforms the worker fighting for her own rights into a businesswoman struggling to protect the factory from bankruptcy. Bajon's film describes the transformation and its social results in a light and understandable way. This is a comedy, but there is also place for bitter reflections of the side-effects of the political transformation in it, too.
