MY FRIVOLOUS FRIEND

DVD, Latvia, Latvijas Filma, Selection, , , , , ,

Arvīds Lasmanis can’t hold any job for long because he is not ready to tolerate deceit and slapdash work. He still has to feed his family, by chance he finds a well-paid job as a gravedigger. A friend helps Arvīds to find a place in a construction team, but other workers don’t approve of Arvīds’ high principles. His wife accuses him of not knowing how to make money, the family lives crammed in one room of a shared flat. The Soviet absurd comedy tells a story about a man who, while at odds with the system, won’t lose his conscience and his true self, even if it means saying no to wealth and comfort.

This is one of the most important films by the legendary film director Jānis Streičs. Arvīds is the first significant role for J. Paukštello. Humorous, naïve, but a stubborn idealist – “a frivolous man” who is willing to fight the Soviet system of indolent workers – that is how Paukštello portrayed Arvīds. The film became very popular after its release and 40 years later still enjoys the love of the audience. It is recognized as one of the best Latvian films ever made and many quotations from it have become the modern folklore.
The film has been digitally restored.
