Rejs, known in English as The Cruise (or "The Trip Down the River"), is a Polish
comedyfilm released in 1970, directed by Marek Piwowskiwho also co-wrote the screenplaywith Janusz Głowacki. The score was composed by Wojciech Kilar.
"Rejs" is considered as a masterpiece by many and as the earliest
cult filmin Polish cinema. Shot in a quasi-documentary style, with a cast featuring not more than two or three professional actors, the absurd plot parodies life in the People's Republic of Poland, reducing a weekend river cruise to a hilarious parody of the entire communistsystem.
A stowaway (
Stanisław Tym) sneaks aboard a ship departing on a cruise down the VistulaRiver. The captain takes him for a Communist Partycultural coordinator and the intruder gladly adapts to his new role, immediately setting to work at manipulating the passengers and crew into silly and vaguely humiliating games. Before long, Tym has got everyone under his thumb and created his own comedic dictatorship. A memorable performance was given by Jan Himilsbach, an amateur actor who formerly carved tombstones.
