'The Revenge - Zemsta' dir. Andrzej Wajda (2002).

In this period comedy, royal cupbearer Raptusiewicz resides in one half of a castle, with the other half inhabited by his hated rival Regent Milczek. Raptusiewicz wishes to marry the Podstolina (widow of the Lord High Steward) for her money, while the Podstolina seeks a wealthy match for herself.

Regent Milczek's wish, on the other hand, is to bring about the union of his son Waclaw with the Podstolina. To complicate matters more, Waclaw is in love with Klara - ward and niece of the Cupbearer, who took her in, following the death of her parents - and the feeling is mutual.

The plot thickens when Klara turns into Papkin's declared object of love...

This adaptation of a stage drama by A. Fredro was inspired by true events from 1828.
