"My newest film is primarily a story of people who want to realize their dreams. The heroes of WTOREK / TUESDAY feel lost in the new reality. I would like this film to be perceived as cheerful and joyous even though it tells the story of a gloomy life". (Witold Adamek)
TUESDAY is a sequel to PONIEDZIALEK / MONDAY, a comedy made three years ago. MONDAY depicted the Polish provinces, where people lack perspectives for the future, where the only chance of survival lies in being crafty.
In MONDAY Maniek and Dawid fell into some dirty money. In TUESDAY they decide to invest it in the entertainment industry, specifically by opening a go-go club. The two novice businessmen are joined in the endeavor by Jurek, an intellectual who agrees to have the club in his warehouse, from which he peddles plaster garden gnomes.
Malgosia, Maniek's wife, and Kinga, Dawid's girlfriend, organize a casting call in an effort to find nice, sexy girls. The club turns out to be a hit; its owners get rich and become famous. But fame can also be a problem. The club is set upon by local gangsters and religious devotees...
The cast is star-studded, but all the stars are not strictly cinema. Actresses Malgorzata Kozuchowska and Kinga Preis are accompanied by Grzegorz Borek (a.k.a. rap and hip-hop artists Bolec), Pawel Kukiz (rock artist and leader of the band Piersi - Breasts), and Jerzy Pilch, recent winner of the NIKE literary prize. Appearances are also put in by Shazza (the queen of disco-polo), Polish language and literature professors Jerzy Bralczyk and Jan Miodek, journalist Pawel Mossakowski, and politician Janusz Korwin-Mikke.
The film is full of action and comedy, and includes a series of rather surprising gags. TUESDAY is an unpredictable and immoral comedy.
Cinema premiere: February 15, 2002.
