Once again Algimantas Puipas spoiled great Lithuanian literature. After "Dievu Miskas" (Forest of Gods) in 2005 this time it's "Nuodemes uzkalbejimas" (Whisper of the Sin). This director has incredible ability of taking wonderful books and making them the most boring piece of cinema. He's torturing you with every line, every scene and every second of the movie. This is mostly because of the fact that the director tries to make each and every scene the most important in the whole movie, and therefore you get... Well, if you've seen this movie, you'll find a curse word that fits in here. There's one more thing that Lithuanian movies have in common. I honestly don't know why, but it appears that we've got the most UNEROTIC movies, and "Nuodemes uzkalbejimas" is no difference. At the scene where the psychotherapist gets down with the guy from morgue (How unsexy is that?!) you can go completely catatonic, because it's simply ugly. The movie is slightly erotic, but in Lithuania it's called controversial because of the sex scenes. You've got to be kidding me. If you're still wondering if you should see this movie, I have to mention the last fact. It was based on novels of a GREAT writer J. Ivanauskaitė, who passed away few days before the movie was finished, may God rest her soul. And one of her last public phrases was "I'm tired of fighting cancer and Algimantas Puipa". That says a lot.
R.I.P. Jurga Ivanauskaitė.
Stop spoiling our classics, Algimantas Puipa.
