Item Description

A contemporary comedy, starring two popular TV actors from the so-called "Two old gentlemen's show"., which Kutz made in 1964 as a sequel to the "Kabaret Starszych Panow" / "Old Gentleman's Cabaret," is practically a cult film today. At the time of its release, it met with strongly differing reactions. Some valued it for its surrealistic sense of humor, air of the grotesque and outright absurdity, while others criticized it for lacking cogency, calling it incoherent and an unfortunate coincidence in the director's career.


Z polecenia premiera, ktory udaje sie na odpoczynek, opieke nad opustoszalym z powodu upalu miastem przejmuja dwaj Starsi Panowie. W pilnowaniu ladu i porzadku pomaga im przybyla wlasnie do stolicy zenska Brygada Przeciwudarowa pod wodza Zuzanny. Nieoczekiwanie przyjezdza pociagiem ambasador egzotycznego panstwa, ktory, oburzony brakiem powitania, sklada ostra note dyplomatyczna w ministerstwie. Zaproszeni do jego siedziby goscie - Starsi Panowie, Basia z baru mlecznego, Albin, jej narzeczony Kornel z Domu Mody i Grzanka, Miss Upalu - probuja zazegnac konflikt. Po wielu perypetiach udobruchany ambasador wycofuje swoj protest. Po deszczu upal maleje. Premier wraca do miasta i swoich obowiazkow. Surrealistyczna komedia kontynuujaca formule popularnego programu telewizyjnego - "Kabaretu Starszych Panow".

Cast: Jeremi Przybora, Jerzy Wasowski, Barbara Krafftowna.
Directed by Kazimierz Kutz.

Richard Brzostek - 04/04/2008 4 of 5 Stars!
Upal (The Heat) is a Polish comedy that strongly uses ridiculous situations to create a fairly funny and entertaining movie. The premier asks two older men to watch the city during his absence. The men are entertainers, a poet and a composer, who know nothing of politics. They cannot refuse the premier so they accept his offer. They set off to work in the uniforms provided, three-piece suits with top hats, to find the city in a heat wave. As they inspect the city, they meet a few men and women who all will play a role in the interconnected storyline. There is a blonde woman is followed by flocks of men who are seemingly hypnotized by her appearance. The woman working in the dinner has the eye of three men, including a diplomat from a foreign land who is offended there was no one to greet him when he arrived in the city. To top it off, a bus of nurses comes to the city to help the people suffering from the heat. Although it might not appear like they are all connected, they actually are. Upal was filmed in 1964, but its setting is a decade or two older. All in all, the setting creates a very unique feeling that works well with the story. This is only complimented by the music, which includes the older gentlemen singing songs from time to time while the screen freezes. Upal is a film that plays upon the ridiculous and silly to make an entertaining film. The older gentlemen work their way out of a several difficulties and provide us with more than a couple laughs along the way. Although the events in the story are far from reality, it's a fun movie. Forget your troubles and step back in time to an earlier era with Upal.
