Movie Diary 2013 (403 movies items)

"26.5. Viskin loppuminen masentaa skotlantilaisen saaren miehet. Tärkeilevä kapteeni ei halua saarelaisten pelastavan uppoavaa viskilastia. Fundamentalistiuskovainen kääkkä piinaa upseeripoikaansa. Toista upseeria kiristää puolestaan tuleva appiukko. Muutamassa kohtaa ihan kunnolla naurattavaa, kaiken kaikkiaan hyväntuulista ja viehättävän autenttista Ealing-komediaa."

"26.5.2013 Ilmeisesti hyvinkin arvostettu elokuva noin pisteytysten perusteella. Minä kun en saanut tästä irti yhtään MITÄÄN. 80 minuutin aikana ei tapahdu mitään kiinnostavaa, huumori ei kolahtanut sitten yhtään (jos sellasta edes huomasin), hahmot olivat ihan helvetin epäkiinnostavia jne. Ei kauhean vakuuttava tapa tutustua Ealing-kamaan."

"aka Whisky Galore. Delightful Ealing comedy about a cargo ship full of whisky crates grounding herself on rocks near a tiny Scottish island and the inhabitants who are intent on grabbing the whisky for themselves. A charming and hilarious movie. Recommended."
