Wedding reception of Andrzej Kamiński’s brother-in-law, Marek, and his wife, Bożena, in the apartment in Warsaw’s Przyczółek Grochowski. The event took place after the civil wedding, and before the church wedding, which in this case were separated by about two weeks. Typical genre scenes: a meeting at a richly set table, festively dressed participants eat, raise toasts, smoke cigarettes. The film ends with scenes from the church wedding of Marek and Bożena in Sulejówek, unfortunately of terrible quality. Andrzej Kamiński describes it as “an attempt to film the ceremony” and not as a film from the wedding.
