Based on the
old Polish variety theater, Kabaret Starszych Panow, or "Old Gentlemen's
Cabaret," this cult comedy classic is renowned for its slapstick gags and
absurd humor. Two entertainers in top hats and tails wreak havoc around
town as they search for a venue to showcase their "talents." The loose
structure is an excuse for assembling a collection of old-style comedy
sketches, songs, and jokes from the Polish cabaret scene of bygone years.
Heat is a departure for Kazimierz Kutz, a renowned director of
serious dramas who began his long career as part of the Polish School of
the 1950s. Polish with English subtitles.
