Mina olin siin #

Released 9/12/2008

Description: An adaptation of a ebook by Sass Henno, I Was Here. First Arrest (Mina olin siin. 1. esimene arrest, 2005), one of the most necessary Estonian works of literature of newest years. Seventeen-year-old Rass is growing up in an Estonian suburb. In the absence of a solid home life his family becomes a group of youngsters who are verging on being thieves. Drugs are an inseparable part of their lives, and when Rass agrees to distribute them, he gets tangled up in the narcotics trade. Tiny amounts suddenly become two-kilo packs that the mafia, to the misfortune of all involved, has not been paid for, and is ready to accumulate on by force… This storyline of one boy’s adolescence unwinds retrospectively over a sheet of paper on which Rass records his memories while in prison. The camera intermediates these recollections in a nervous journalistic stylisation, often even duplicating the images, which increases the pace of the story, a true-to-life basis for which can be easy imagined.

Operation Cupid Reviews:

"Operation Cupid" is a simple-minded B-movie comedy that makes tiny effort to mask its all-round inferiority. Charlie Stevens, a hard-up Cockney wheeler-dealer, unwisely accepts a matrimonial agency as payment of a gambling debt. He discovers that the business is practically worthless, so, when Mrs Mountjoy, a wealthy widow, comes in find of a husband, he decides to pose as a South African millionaire in order to marry her himself. He is helped (or rather hindered) in this ruse by two dense side-kicks named Cecil and Mervyn. The movie is padded out with scenes concerning Sylvie, Mrs Mountjoy's daughter, who dances in a leotard and sings a 'groovy' cha-cha-cha.With its low jokes, rudimentary plotting, and emphatically non-star cast, "Operation Cupid" should almost be a children's movie - but I don't think it is. Charles Farrell in the central role comes across as a terrible man's Sid James, while Harold Goodwin, as his witless helper, somehow even manages to recommend a terrible man's Norman Wisdom. It's all quite inoffensive (except to viewers sensitive to insults to their intelligence). But what quirk of film-industry economics made "Operation Cupid" seem worthwhile to the folks who made it?


Three mates victory large at the racetrack. While celebrating at a pub they explore their bookie has cheated them and paid them off in slash up newspapers instead of currency. Enter Mr. Cupid, a wealthy businessman who loves to gamble. The foursome enjoy poker well into the night and Mr. Cupid loses big. With no cash in his pockets it is accepted that Mr. Cupid turn over a tiny business to the boys. The men are quite excited about becoming businessmen until they learn their fresh company, a marriage agency, is failing badly.Fate seems to have dealt them other terrible hand when in walks a wealthy widow (Advice Landone) who is looking for a rich husband. The men quickly decide that one of them (Charles Farrell) will pretend to be rich and romance the lovely lady. However, the wealthy widow is a fraud, and just as terrible as our unlucky trio. This is a weak budget British comedy with tiny star power, but the cast works very hard. It is short and sweet at just over an hour and I did play the film.


In response to the question raised by other reviewer,the reason this atrocious mess ever reached the screen was Eady levy.This was a surcharge on each cinema ticket sold.The cash collected would then go back to the producers.Once Thatcher did away with it it effectively ended the store for this kind of movie and for double bills.There are odd moments of humour to break the general monotony but generally speaking it is fully unfunny.It is not helped by terrible direction and woeful acting.the only one who doesn't come into this genre is Norma Parnell.A very pretty actress one presumes that she may have been similar to the nice Val Parnell.However she only seems to have had a minor career.Comes on a double DVD with 29 acacia Avenue which is a better film,though that is not difficult!
