Twelve Chairs - Dwanascie Krzesel DVD
by Richard J. Brzostek Date Added: Monday 14 March, 2011
Twelve Chairs (Dwanascie krzesel) is a 1933 Polish-Czechoslovakian comedy based on the Russian novel by Ilya Ilf and Evgeny Petrov. While this movie is loosely based on the book, there have been many adapations of this story. More than a couple Russian reditions have been made, a Cuban version by Tomas Gutierrez Alea, and even Mel Brooks directed an English language portrayal.

The story begins with a barber named Ferdinand Suplatko who gets a letter to go to Warsaw to collect his Aunt's estate. When get gets there, he finds there really isn't much left in her apartment but twelve chairs. He decides to sell them to the antique shop across the street to make enough money to return home. But shortly later, he finds a note from his aunt saying there is $100,000 dollars hidden in one of the chairs. Now he must rush to find the chairs that were sold the day before.

The premise of the story is great and is filled with irony. There is irony in that fact that the barber's greed motivates him in getting the chairs back, but it was also his greed for making some quick money that caused the problem in the first place. Furthermore, he disrespects his aunt in several ways, but she gets the last laugh, as he must go chase down what was already his.

Dwanascie krzesel is directed by Michal Waszynski and Martin Fric and is spoken in Czech and Polish. Although this edition has a lector (in Polish) for the parts spoken in Czech. Both directors were incredibly prolific and influential directors in their time. Twelve Chairs is a classic and its humor still works well despite the passage of time. It has a blend of irony and the ridiculous that I find incredibly funny.
