Holiday Weekend | Chicago Reader

Holiday Weekend

A romantic comedy that mixes contemporary culture and timeless comic devices. On a Blind Date-style game show, a middle-aged soldier picks a woman who's his opposite—he's nostalgic for socialism; she's a former antisocialist activist. Their getaway date falls on the same weekend as May 1. He orchestrates a celebration of the international workers' holiday, and she counters by setting up a lecture by a poet she has a crush on—and the hotel guests are forced to choose sides in the escalating battle. Director Robert Glinski keeps things moving along at a good clip, and the breezy mix of politics and romance recalls films like Ninotchka. In Polish with subtitles. 72 min.
