fragment of feature film
Kochaj i Tańcz (Love and Dance) is a Polish dance movie/romantic comedy. The story begins with a construction worker guy (Mateusz Damiecki) bumping into a woman (Izabella Miko) on her way to an interview to work for a magazine. They soon see each other again as her first assignment is to do a story about dancers and it just happens that he has ambitions to be a dancer. They both get along well and like each other, but she fails to tell him that she has a fiance already and is getting married soon.
Interestingly enough, Poles who left their homeland and became famous for acting in English speaking films have two of the leading roles in Kochaj i Tancz. Jacek Koman left Poland in the early 1980s and stared in well-known films such as Moulin Rouge! and Defiance. Although Izabella Miko's early work was in Polish cinema, she has stared in far more American films since then. From Coyote Ugly to Clash of the Titans, Miko is better known for her English language movies. Interestingly enough, before she got into acting she actually was a ballet dancer.
