The story is about second chances and getting another try to make a good thing even better. Zosia (Ilona Ostrowska) is celebrating her 40th birthday on New Year's Eve with her daughter and second husband Kuba. But this isn't any New Year's but year 2000, and between the paranoia and excitement there is something magical in store for Zosia. She wishes she was younger and met Kuba earlier so she could have enjoyed being with him sooner.
By some strange happening her wish comes true and she goes back twelve years in time. To her shock, Zosia finds herself in bed with her first husband, before the time she became pregnant with her daughter. She is given a chance to live these years again knowing exactly what events shaped and changes the lives of her and her friends. The down side is that she is now in the PRL (Communist Poland) and many aspects of life are backwards compared to the life she just came from.
Going through life knowing what will happen has its advantages but it also isn't easy. It is almost a game of cheating fate and is a lot more suspenseful than one might imagine. Besides the funny parts there is ample drama. Some touching moments in this film may even bring some tears to your eye.
The work of Juliusz Machulski is well known to those who enjoy Polish films.Read more ›
