Teddy Bear 1981 Streaming Now
The main character, nicknamed “Teddy Bear” by his friends and acquaintances, is a manager of a sports club in Poland.
One day he is detained at the border just as his sport team is off to a tournament.
It appears that somebody has torn out a few pages from his passport. It occurs to him that perhaps his ex-wife has done it in order to get her hands on their joint account in a London bank.
Therefore, he has to get to London as soon as possible in order to transfer the money to a different bank.
The solution is taking part in a movie, made by his friend. The script requires a double role, thus the search for another actor is announced.
The double has to apply for the passport, and that is solved through a girlfriend who agrees to play the dope’s new fiancée.
At the engagement party he is slipped a drug, and Teddy Bear runs off to the airport with the false passport. On the plane, however, he meets his ex-wife…
Jan Hochwander: What brings you here?
Ryszard Ochódzki: Janek, you know very well how it was. There was a war. Five years of war, five years of occupation…
Jan Hochwander: I’ve made 28 films about it, and now I’m making the 29th.
Ryszard Ochódzki: So you know from the films, how it was. It was hard. And before the war? During the Sanation regime?…
Jan Hochwander: I’ve made 18 films about it.
Not as stupid as it seems.
First time I’ve seen it, I didn’t fully get the idea what this film is supposed to be about. Maybe a little bit funny, sometimes silly, but in overall, didn’t make sense, at all.
But when you actually think about how life in Poland was at that time, and if you know somebody ( preferably from Poland ) who will guide you, you’ll find this film hilarious and love it.
It shows, very sarcastically though, how the life in Poland in early 1980s was, and how people were dependent on each other.
I don’t want to talk about it too much, but the score is 10 without doubts, and if you’re looking for a clever foreign comedy, that’s the one you should see.
