Babas bilar (2006)
Movie InfoCompared frequently in the American press to the Coen Brothers comedy Fargo (given its similar blend of brutal crime and comedy-of-errors shenanigans), the Scandinavian picture Baba's Cars opens on the lingering dissatisfaction that ditzy blonde Anso (Laura Malmivaara) projects toward her beau, Jojo (Andreas Wilson). A complete layabout, he sits around all day and never accomplishes anything of significance aside from ice fishing. Anso grows desperate for Jojo to get a job, provided that it doesn't mean collecting a paycheck from her estranged dad, the slickster used-car-salesman (and thief) of the title (Hassan Brijany). The bough threatens to break beneath them when Jojo makes the foolhardy decision to blow his savings on a beaten-up Cadillac, which sends Anso through the roof; to compensate for his newfound pennilessness, he covertly accepts a job working as a gofer for Baba, sans Anso's knowledge. Jojo's first assignment: to snatch an automobile from Eleena, whose boyfriend Ivan (Gyorgi Staykov) , a Russian drug czar, actually owns the vehicle. Without Jojo or Baba's knowledge, Ivan has stuffed a fortune in hard cash under one of the seats. When he discovers that his car is now MIA, he sends three idiotic henchmen - all Finns - out to retrieve it, little realizing that Baba just resold the vehicle to a dippy, garrulous Norwegian (Per Christian Ellefsen) on his way across the border with it at that very moment. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi … More
