… tradus “Unde dai si unde crapa”.

In articolul precedent am mentionat acest film si m-am gandit sa va spun mai multe despre el.

Ca o mare amatoare de comedii bune, trebuie sa spun ca acest film face parte din categoria comediilor foarte bune. Modul in care atatea vieti se invart in jurul aceluiasi lucru este mai mult decat amuzant. Care este lucrul? Un diamant “de marimea unui pumn”.

Totul incepe cu un jaf in Antwerp, in timpul caruia diamantul este furat. De aici totul o ia la vale, pentru ca in Londra unii aud de existenta acestei pietre pretioase si incepe o cursa nebuna pentru a-l fura.

Pe de alta parte, un organizator de meciuri ilegale isi pierde singurul jucator pe care-l avea cand acesta este doborat de un tigan fost campion la box fara manusi. Cum apare tiganul in peisaj? El avea o rulota de vanzare care trebuia sa devina noul birou al organizatorului de meciuri ilegale de box.

Suna complicat? Ei bine, este. Asta rezulta din combinarea unui gangster, a unui asasin rus, a unui tigan cu un accent infiorator de greu de inteles, a unui dealer american, a unui ucigas platit, cu trei negri care incearca sa fie duri (fara sa le reuseasca), cu un parior obsedat cu patru degete la o mana si un caine.

Povestea este spusa de organizatorul de meciuri ilegale de box, care si-a primit numele dupa numele companiei aeronautice care a fost implicata intr-un accident aviatic. Odata cu prezentarea lui, aflam lungul sir de nume care mai de care mai ciudate: Turkish (care ne duce imediat cu gandul la compania aeronautica Turkish Airlines), Adorabilul George, Boris-lama, cunoscut si ca Boris-cel-care-evita-gloantele, Frankie-patru-degete, Tony-cu-dintele-dintr-un-glont si Doug-capul.

Filmul este plin de replici hilare, intamplari haioase si, mai ales, personaje care mai de care mai amuzante. Merita vazut, dar numai inainte de masa, in afara programului de odihna si neaparat dupa o vizita la baie ; )

P.S.: Recomand sa vedeti filmul cu subtitrare. Ar fi pacat sa ratati ce spun tiganii din film, in frunte cu Mickey (Brad Pitt) avand in vedere ca nici ceilalti actori nu au inteles mai nimic.

I’ve mentioned the name of this film in my previous article and I decided to tell you more about it.

As someone in love with great comedies, I have to say that this film is among those brilliant comedies that I have seen so far. The way so many lives revolve around the same thing is more than hilarious. What is the thing? A diamond “the size of a fist”.

It all starts with a robbery in Antwerp, during which the diamond is stolen. Everything starts falling apart after that because some people in London hear about the heist and start an incredibly mad race to get to it and steal it for themselves.

On a slightly separate line, an unlicensed boxing promoter loses his only fighter when a gipsy man, former champion at bare-knucle box, knocks him out. How did the gipsy man come into the story? He had a caravan to sell which was to become the new office of the illegal boxing promoter.

Sounds complicated? Well, it is. This is what comes out when you mix a gangster, a Russian assasin, a gipsy man with an awful accent, an American dealer, a hitman with three black people who try to be badass (but fail to succeed), an obsessed gambler with four fingers on one hand and a dog.

The story is told by the unlicensed boxing promoter who was named after an airline company which had a plane that crashed. And here are the names of some of the characters: Turkish (from Turkish Airlines), Gorgeous George, Boris-the-blade, aka Boris-the-bullet-dodger, Frankie-four-fingers, Bullet-tooth-Tony and Doug-the-head.

The film is filled with hilarious lines, funny moments and comical characters. It’s worth a view, but only before a meal, outside quiet hours and, most imperative, after a visit to the bathroom ; )

P.S.: I recommend that you watch the film with subtitles. It would be a pity to miss the words of the gyspy men from the film and especially Mickey’s (Brad Pitt), considering that even the fellow actors had issues with understanding their words.
