This is how the places and memorabilia related to “Sami swoi” and “Nie mamocnych” look like today. Sławomir Szeliga visited them with his family and shared his impressions. 56 years ago, Wacław Kowalski and Stanisław Hańcza played the heads of feuding families. A prequel to the legendary film is currently being developed. Kargul is played by Karol Dziuba, and Pawlak is played by Adam Bobik.
The screenplay was written by Andrzej Mularczyk.
The main roles will be played by:
- Polina Jazzka (Nishaka Slobodzian),
- Veronica Heimage (Mania Zybica),
- Zbigniew Zamachowski (Casper Pavlik),
- Katarzyna Krzanowska (Maryjka Pawlak),
- Miroslav Baca (Zebecki),
- Wojtek Malajkat (priest),
- Anna Demna (Pesinica),
- Janusz Shapur (Wincenty Kargol),
- Adam Ferenci (Uncle Pessin),
- Agnieszka Suchora (Ziebicka).
The main role of Kargol will be played by Karol Dziuba, and Paflak Adam Bobek.
The film will describe the fate of the Pawlaks and Karguls before Kresy left. Andrzej Mularczyk described them in his book I Lived. The photos are currently being taken in the Ethnographic Park in Tokarnia, that is, in a branch of the Kielce Countryside Museum. The movie is about to hit theaters Next year.
– Everyone asks us two questions in turn: “Why?” , “Why?”. The answer is very simple: this is the beginning of the whole story and it was supposed to be the first part of the cult series, but in the late 1960s, for political reasons, no one allowed the production of a film that would show the fraternal Soviet nation in a negative, slightly satirical way. Indeed, the trilogy without the part we are currently producing is incomplete, and it is poorer for the world in which Pavlik first fell in love, had his heart broken for the first time, and fought for it. – says Tomasz Kubski, producer of the film.
Sławomir Szeliga with his wife Agnieszka and son Kacper followed in the footsteps of the places where this cult film was shot. Inowrocław residents search for well-known locations from Polish films. So they went to Lower Silesia to better feel the atmosphere of the movie “Sami Sui”.
– The story of the fate of two quarreling Kreese families, whose fate after the war threw them into Lower Silesia, is known to almost everyone. The film was shot in Dobrzykowice Wrocławskie, where two houses still stand. The Kargul and Pawlak Museum has been established in Lubomierz. This town also “starred” in the movie. Hiking in Lower Silesia, we also decided to “go close to the fence” – reminds Słomir Želiga.
The houses in Dobrzykowice on Szkolna Street, he assures, are not much different from the movie setAnd in Pawlaków you can still admire the wooden balcony drowning in flowers.
– It’s the same one that Kaymirez Paflak’s mother stood on with a grenade in her hand when her son was leaving to test the cat. “The court is the court, and justice must be on our side,” Leonia Pavlak said. We did not find the current hosts – reveals Slawomir Szeliga.
– The grandson of the returner from all over the bugs told us the story of his grandparents’ movie and showed us around the habitat. We wandered into the yard where Cargole put out the cat bowls; We look at the window through which Anya and Zenek escaped, and at the door to the barn where the PGE harvester is hidden. In the memory room of the house were a machete and other tools as well as photographs from the period when Sylwester Chosinski and his team stayed there. Of course, “approaching the fence” aroused the most emotions … The heroes of the comedy were also awarded a monument in Dobrzykowice – says Slawomir Szeliga.
On the Market Square in Lubomirs The Zeligs toured the film market, where Witia bought a cat that “came from central Poland” and gave him a bicycle (“Post-Germany”) and two sacks of wheat.
– The Kargul and Pawlak Museum has collected many memorabilia, including the gun from which the lock and soil from Krużewniki were fired. It is a magical place worth visiting on the tourist track. There, Kacper bought a replica of the movie’s bombshell, which greatly increased our sense of security. Humor too – which we wish all fans of Polish comedy – confirms Slawomir Szeliga.
