Editorial Reviews

Midsummer Madness is a quirky romantic comedy set in Latvia, the former Soviet republic, on the shortest night of the year. The whole country is going crazy on midsummer night when Curt, a young American, arrives in Riga, and the festivities are about to start. He's there to look for his Latvian half-sister and hates the place from the moment they fingerprint him at the airport. He sure as hell doesn't feel like partying, but somehow, events of the night, and a very persuasive taxi driver make him see things differently, so much so that by the morning he doesn't bat an eyelid when he sees a kangaroo being wheeled into a hospital for treatment. A classic, slapstick, comedy of errors, from arguably the most vibrant filmmaking hotspots in today's Europe

I ordered this DVD, Midsummer Madness, because I have always had an interest in the work of the talented young man, Orlando Wells, who is the star.
I have followed the career of this actor/playwright, since he was a child, appearing in a memorable 1984 film of the Charles Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol" alongside his beautiful mother, Susannah York, and his sister, Sasha Wells, who played Belinda Cratchitt, to Susannah's Mrs. Cratchitt, and Orlando's Little Boy Cratchitt.
It is a most enjoyable fim, set in Latvia, during the celebrations for Midsummer - the longest day of the year. It was well-acted, and in the end, quite touching.
I would recommend it to lovers of off-beat, thought-provoking films, with a quirky soul.
As usual, quick and efficient service from Amazon.

You have to be or know Latvians to truly enjoy this movie but don't let that stop you. It revolves around an American young man's efforts to find his father's mistress and their daughter before his father passes away. Hilarity ensues as everyone prepares for the celebration of the summer solstice. It has a zany cast of characters who flesh out this romp through the midsummer madness that is Jāni.

Great, quirky film. Its nice to watch a film at times that doesn't include a constant barrage of gunfire.

The movie is a slapstick that is foreign enough so that most of the humor falls flat and the viewer is left out of the joke.
