Directed by Lionel Baier (Garȯn Stupide) this sweet, oddball story deftly shuffles between sex, family love and adventure with comedic grace. From all outward appearances, Lionel is a happy gay man with a great career and a modern, open minded family who accepts his devoted lover Serge as one of their own. Then Lionel discovers he has Polish ancestors. Suddenly he's immersing himself in all things Polish: food, language, etc. Things really heat up when he meets a pretty Polish immigrant facing deportation and decides to marry her. Taking charge, Lucy (Lionel's sister) "borrows" Lionel's company car for a road trip to Poland to discover the family roots. Once there, Lionel rediscovers his seemingly lost homosexuality with the handsome Polish boy, Stan, and along the way, he finds the true meaning of family.

Kind of a fairly happy movie, fairly heart-warming. Good to watch. Helps if you know both French and Polish so you can catch the switch from one language to another, as the language switch is used to convey meaning.
It's nice to see gay men acting normal. That's rare in America.
