Trivia

The title of the film remains as it was originally conceived while the script was being written. But during the making of the film, one other option was considered as well - "Mastermind", which is also the title of the crime series that Imant Veide, the main character in the film, is writing. But in the end, "The Foundation of Criminal Excellence" prevailed. See more »

Terrible
1 January 2019 | by elvis-11986See all my reviews

Sorry it was terrible. No logic at all. They are using too much swear words. Terrible characters and I think the plot isn't original. Definitely not a good Latvian comedy. A gift for a single women is still the best Latvian comedy!
