An amiable romantic comedy about a Chinese film crew who decide they want a load of gloomy extras and think Poland is the perfect place to shoot their movie. Cue farcical auditions and on-set shenanigans as the director's instructions are relayed through put-upon translator Bozena who deliberately sabotages her ex's chances. Fine performances and a strong script give the various romantic relations that spring up during the shoot at least a grounding in reality, and show that working together both groups can discover the limitations of national stereotypes in many sweet and humorous ways.

Winner of 5 Awards at the Polish Film Festival 2006 including Best Script
