Quite entertaining yet chauvinistic and misogynistic movie
15 October 2017 | by KinganiemSee all my reviews

At the post-screening Q&A with the film director at the Warsaw Film Festival, I had just one thought: "what a horrible man!". While the movie is admittedly entertaining, it can't be just taken for a crafty satire and pastiche. The conversation with the film director revealed that it is personal, malicious and bitchy revenge for all the wrongs and harms done to him, his brother and all his male buddies by their ex- and current girlfriends and wives (apparently most of the scenes are based on the director's diary). No wonder that the first question from the audience (and from a male viewer!) was: "Do you hate women?"
