Storyline

Janu Nakts (St. John's Night) is a traditional Latvian celebration during which family and friends gather to build bonfires, barbecue, drink and generally have a good time. According to legend, lovers and those who would like to fall in love, can search the woods for the "magic fern" on this night. This magic fern serves as the focus and pivotal point of the six stories in "Midsummer Madness" It is also a metaphor for the film's underlying theme - finding love. "MIDSUMMER MADNESS " is reflected in the recurring element of the magic fern, a metaphor (both in the film and in real life) for love. The question posed by the film is: can a search for love ever be successful? Each story deals with this question. An answer is provided at the film's conclusion in a humorous and unforgettable way: we see the legendary fern, glowing magically in a meadow. It exists after all! Then a cow ambles along and eats it. The deeper message, which is not obvious to the audience, is therefore: Yes, a ... Written by Joe W. Wrist

Lathuania? There is no such country. And some good thoughts about the movie.
18 November 2007 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

First of all, about the sentence "where many people from different countries come to Lathuania". What kind of country is Lathuania? Maybe it is a new way of mixing two different countries (which though have things in common): Latvia and Lithunia. The events take place mostly in Latvia and only a little bit in Lithuania. I thought it was very important to say this as I am Latvian and do not like mixing up the two countries or even saying a wrong name of our country. Nothing personal, please. This movie for me as a Latvian was very exciting from the very first moment. I suppose it is more interesting for those who represent the nationalities involved in the movie, like Latvians, Lithuanians, Russians, English, Americans, Germans, Austrians, French and even Chinese (did I forgot anybody?). I liked the way Latvians and other nationalities were represented. Good humor, really!
