“In-laws” are a crazy story about what can happen when you finally lose your temper. It is not just another romantic comedy – it is a film about the confrontation of two different worlds that will make you laugh even if you haven’t been to a wedding in quite a while. The main cast includes Maja Ostaszewska, Marcin Dorociński, Izabela Kuna and Adam Woronowicz. The film directed by Kuba Michalczuk will premiere on 10 September. You can watch the trailer today.
APPEARANCES VS. REALITY
Is the wedding party a sure-fire disaster if the wedding is cancelled? Certainly. And what a disaster it is! Everything sets the two families apart – their background, status, wealth and taste. Initially, the parents of the groom (Maja Ostaszewska and Marcin Dorociński) and the bride (Izabela Kuna and Adam Woronowicz) are simply shocked. What happened? Who is responsible for this? What about the wedding party? Should we welcome the guests? Let the music play? Pour drinks? Who will cut the cake? From one word to the next, pleasant smiles turn into a nasty public quarrel. That’s when the real shocker comes… In the meantime, the wedding party grows really wild. And no one seems to be missing the bride and groom.
A COMEDY THAT TURNS THE SPOTLIGHT ON OURSELVES
– The film pokes fun at ourselves, just like the cult comedies we all love as audience – says Kuba Michalczuk, director. – The contrast between war and people having fun is the highlight of every scene. This is the narrative theme of the entire film, which makes you laugh whenever these two elemental forces clash with each other – he adds.
Izabela Kuna, who plays the mother of the supposed bride, emphasises: – I recommend the film to anyone who has ever been or will be to a wedding party.
– There are certainly some myths and stereotypes about wedding parties, but, just like everything else, I am sure that wedding parties can take on many different forms. The wedding party in the „In-laws”, however, is something the audience should see for themselves – there will certainly be plenty of laughs as well as a time for reflection – says Marcin Dorociński. – The supporting characters are a particularly enjoyable part. All the aunts and uncles have been brilliantly cast, they are simply hilarious – he adds.
