The plot provides a nice balance between possible and unexpected. It is a multifacet film, providing the viewer with an option to choose his or her own way of looking at the events that unfold: will the criminals succeed, how funny people are, will an unscrupulous businessman convert the Juliusz Slowacki Theater in Cracow into a department store, will a friendship survive very adverse circumstances, and will Julian and Magda get together. The director, the cinematographer and the actors provide interesting comments on the film, the plot, and on themselves. In addition to seeing an interesting story, the viewer can then compare his/her own impressions with the intentions of the creators of the film.
