When a wealthy Swiss septuagenarian impregnates his Polish maid, the stage is set for a highly interesting clash between rich and poor, bourgeoisie and working class, Eastern and Western Europe. As the two families are drawn into the same orbit by the illicit affair, we are introduced to a series of archetypical yet remarkably nuanced characters and their increasingly farcical dealings. Well-acted and deftly directed, MY WONDERFUL WANDA is an entertaining comedy of errors with a heart, from one of Switzerland’s preeminent directors.
