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

Boring and predictable!
15 April 2013 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

As one of the modern Bulgarian movies this one is exactly what's wrong with the movie makers in Bugaria. The plot is painfully boring and predictable, the directing is nothing new, most of the cast are old and not so good. All in all it's a terrible movie. It always bugs me, when I watch contemporary Bulgarian movies, how crap they are. Sometimes the movie makers try to use the Hollywood formulas and clichés but it's often a complete failure. And this movie is a prime example of that. I won't give you any spoilers because I can recount the whole story in a sentence but suffice it to say that it's not very interesting. Some people recommended this to me so I was hoping to see something at least decent but it's not. You're are better off watching "Pod prikritie". Cheers!
