Storyline

Operation Shmenti Capelli is one of the most unique filmmaking stories in Bulgaria during the last twenty years. The long awaited eccentric comedy is a personal dream of popular Bulgarian actor Vladislav Karamfilov-Vargala. The title is based on the idiomatic expression "shmenti capelli" characterizing actions of people who like to shuffle and bamboozle others with superficial commitments. Karamfilov choose it as a metaphor for people with huge economic and political power. The funny comedy incorporates a tragic story in which Karamfilov plays two roles: the Big Guy and the Little Guy. Big is tied to the Mafia and the secret services. Little is an unemployed teacher, squeezed and crushed by the system, which stops his heating and electricity, has his home emptied by a bailiff, and uses him as a tool in a game. Written by Monnie

I liked it
18 April 2013 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

I should say that I didn't expect much from this movie before watching it. Maybe that is exactly the reason it didn't disappoint me. At the beginning of it I couldn't completely get the storyline, but at the middle everything just felt to its place. What makes this movie so fresh are its metaphors about the everyday life in Bulgaria - all the things we know and see daily, but they somehow don't make it to the media and society chooses to ignore them. What I didn't like is the first scene of the movie (it seemed a bit politically charged). It's been a long time since I've watched a movie that really did make me laugh. This one did. It has this strange, but typical for the Balkan region, sense of humor - partially bitter, partially foolish and surreal. Not that it's my favorite movie and I shall watch it over and over again, neither it gave me that strong of an impression. But it's better than I expected, and it seems like the movie industry in Bulgaria grows stronger. Soon it will deliver a product that is truly watchable and can be distributed worldwide and hypothetically make some real profit.
