From Sylwester Checinski, the director of Calls Controlled, OUR FOLKS tells the story of two quarreling families who were resettled from Kresy to the regained territories after WWII. Much to their dismay, Pawlak and Kargul discover that they have been resettled on neighboring farms. When Pawlak s son and Kargul s daughter fall for each other, the families realize they are living their own version of Romeo and Juliet.
A beloved classic, OUR FOLKS remains a favorite among the Polish movie-going public. A museum in Lubomierz features a museum dedicated to OUR FOLKS and its two spin-offs, Take It Easy and Big Deal, and Turan boasts a statue of the two main heroes, Kargul and Pawlak.

Of course, in the best "Romeo and Juliet" tradition, the son and daughter of the families fall in love and this relationship has the power to either escalate the latent violence or mend the fences (literally: the family build a fence between their properties, then cross it, strengthen it, weaken it, etc.
It is a fun movie, but be warned: I watch this and many European films on my computer, as the region is not USA.
This movie will be a Criterion release someday.
I also recommend the firemans ball a movie from the same time period (Czech) both movies are about life not politics.
