Един ден от Лондон и цяла вечност някъде другаде

Whole eternity someplace else

Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day / 2008/

"War threatens London as Miss Pettigrew, a destitute governess, filches a client's card from her agency and presents herself at the door. A singer named Delysia Lafosse wants a social secretary as she seeks a West End role by sleeping with a feckless producer in the bed of Nick, a smarmy nightclub owner with whom she also dallies. She ignores Michael, her piano player, who loves her and has tickets for New York on the Queen Mary. Miss Pettigrew's job is to make sure Delysia gets the part. Over 24 hours, Miss Pettigrew is also called upon to help an ambitious and unfaithful fashion editor patch things up with her older fiancé, a lingerie designer. Has Miss Pettigrew found her calling?

Операция „Шменти капели" е български игрален филм от 2011 година на режисьора Иван Митов, по сценарий на Владислав Карамфилов. Оператор е Кирил Вълчанов.

"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

Here's a link to the movie trailer:

Operation Shmenti Capelli (2011) Trailer (OPERATION TARADIDDLE) 

 Description: Those in power have their own laws. It’s impossible to stay out of the game. If you don’t get in, you’ll get involved against your will. Those in power make plans. The more influential they are, the more daring and clever their actions. A mysterious perpetrator executes a monstrous crime whose elements follow a relentless logic: hostages, ransom, gunfire and explosions. Many are killed. But when all this is over, it becomes obvious that the events have created a complex labyrinth, in which the threads leading to the truth are gradually untangled. “Operation Taradiddle” is a political satire laden with the spirit of Chaplin’s movies — comical yet simultaneously sad. It is a dynamic dark comedy showing what happened in Bulgaria in the 20 years after the fall of communism. This is a film about the new times and their sinister crimes. It tells the story of an ordinary man, an unemployed math teacher, who is accidentally involved in the big game of greed, politics and corruption. An intriguing tale about the secrets, which those in power cannot hide forever. This film’s distinctive style is sprinkled with colorful ethnic details present only in Kosturica’s movies and creating an atmosphere of absurdity characteristic of films like “Barton Fink” and “Brazil”.

You can watch at least five minutes of the movie - you will feel the atmosphere.

I watched these movies a few days ago and they are my first proposal for the challenge:
"A Giant Leap!".
/Vargala is my classmate. He actually managed to make his dream - a reality!

The last time I met him in 2009. I told him that I'm 6 months without a job. He knew that I graduated from Sofia Mathematics High School. That is why I saw a small part of myself in this film./
