Polish Wedding



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG-13

A young Polish woman (Claire Danes) still living with her big family discovers she's pregnant after being chosen to lead her church's Procession of the Virgin. Also with Lena Olin, Gabriel Byrne, Adam Trese, Mili Avital, Daniel LaPaine, Rade Serbedzija, Ramsey Krull and Steven Petrarca. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Sexual innuendo and several passionate kisses. We see a man's hand running up a woman's bare inner thigh and under her dress, then the camera quickly pans to the woman's smiling face. A woman unbuttons a man's shirt, unbuckles his belt and unbuttons her shirt; we later see him lying on top of her, obviously after having intercourse (they're both shirtless but her arms cover her breasts). A woman pulls a man onto the floor, straddles him, lifts up his shirt and rubs his torso; the man then flips on top of her and the scene ends. A man unbuttons a woman's dress (we see most of her bra), kisses her neck and runs his hand over her breast; we later see them in robes and he briefly caresses her bare leg, which is propped on his shoulder. A clothed man lies on top of a clothed woman and they kiss passionately; the scene ends but it's implied that they have intercourse. We see a woman in her bra and slip and a woman in her bra while getting dressed. We see some shirtless men and a woman in several cleavage-revealing tops. We see many nude and bare-breasted women in paintings during the opening credits.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A group of people wielding hockey sticks kick in a house's door; we later see them dragging a man out of the house and threatening to beat him (the scene is more comical than dramatic). Twice, a man hits the back of a boy's head. A woman slaps a boy and a woman shakes another woman. A man chases a woman and pulls her to the ground; he straddles her and holds her down for a few seconds before getting up. A man tries to pull a woman down a flight of steps.

PROFANITY 5 - 2 F-words, a couple scatological references and mild obscenities and a few insults. Two obscene finger gestures. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Religion, family life, infidelity, out-of-wedlock pregnancy, motherhood.

MESSAGE - Children are often doomed to repeat their parents' mistakes.

Special Keywords: S6 - V2 - P5 - MPAAPG-13

Our Ratings Explained

Tell Friends About Our Site

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
