The Latvian heist movie made everyone laugh. Being honest, the cause of laughter possibly was the lively and uncensored language. On other hand, the jokes weren't weak as well.
While watching the movie, even the introvert let the breath run through his nose a bit faster (I know since one of them was sitting next to me). Even though my humor is probably destroyed by internet, some of the jokes tickled even my funny bone.
The story goes quite slowly but it didn't hurt the intrigue. TV screenwriter Imants has a great idea to try out everything he writes for a new TV show about thieves ('scuse me, tricksters). Meanwhile, his friend Harry wants to make something out of himself and earn a buck. What begins with stealing Pupsiks (a dog, which eventually makes its owner crazy) ends with Imants idea of becoming a criminal authority.
I have to say the location scout did his job very well. Some of the places were perfect for recreating authentic feeling of the 90's. Cinematography was beautiful and the color scheme was nice to the eye. The actors were great for their roles and I have a feeling that we'll finally have our own movie actors (Latvia has a lot of theater actors but none of them usually fit the movie scene well).
The only thing that was a bit out of place was the dubbing. Sometimes the voices weren't what you'd expect from a running person or while being in the interior of a speeding car. And the other thing - the rule of thirds exists for a reason.
Even the sociopath laughed. That is a good sign that the movie was great.
