Let’s Watch Slovene (Gledamo slovensko): Šanghaj


07.05.2017, 19:30

There’s an increasing number of crazy foreign individuals in Slovenia trying to pick up the Slovene language. Every Monday we have Let’s Talk Slovene, but we’d like to introduce something else to give you an extra helping hand…

Once a month we are going to show a fantastic Slovene film with English subtitles. This experience lets you hear the Slovenian language in action, while watching some of Slovenia’s most iconic movies.

This time we’re watching Shanghai. Whether you’re somebody trying to learn Slovene, or just a film geek who’s interested in watching a good Slovenian movie, we’d love for you to join us.

It’s not strictly in the Slovenian language, but it’s still an interesting insight into Slovenian film.

Synopsis:
The main protagonists of the film are members of the gypsy family Mirga. Lutvija Belmondo Mirga narrates a story about four generations. Belmondo is the central character of the film, a gypsy king, who decided to establish his own gypsy village. He names it Shanghai. Belmondo makes a living smuggling and his power and influence grow big. He even gets the local police and politics on his side and that helps him to become untouchable by the law. But with the downfall of Yugoslavia, smuggling of goods is replaced by smuggling of arms. Though lucrative, the business starts to threaten Belmondo’s personal life and he finds himself at the crossroads. Will he protect his own family, or is he going to sacrifice his personal happiness for business ambitions?

Shanghai Gypsy is a story about eternal longing for happiness; it is a story about love and family ties, in which tears are intertwined with laughter. The story is set in times of the downfall of Yugoslavia, and it’s shot in the authentic Romani language…

The film starts at 19:30 on Sunday.

Vse več je tistih posebnežev, ki bi se radi naučili slovenskega jezika. Vsak ponedeljek se v sklopu večerov Let’s talk slovene že učimo slovensko, zdaj pa zgodbi priključujemo še filmsko umetnost.

Enkrat na mesec bomo tako predvajali klasičen slovenski film z angleškimi podnapisi.

Naš tretji film je Šanghaj, ki je sicer posnet v izvirnem romskem jeziku, vendar je vseeno zanimiv vpogled v slovenski film. Upamo da se nam pridružite!

Sinopsis:
Glavni protagonisti filma so člani ciganske družine Mirga. V njem spremljamo zgodbo štirih generacij, ki jo v prvi osebi pripoveduje Lutvija Belmondo Mirga. Belmondo je tudi osrednji junak zgodbe, romski kralj, ki se odloči ustvariti lastno vas. Poimenuje jo Šanghaj. Preživlja se s tihotapljanjem in njegov vpliv v okolici s časom narašča. Na svojo stran pridobi lokalno policijo in politiko, kar mu pomaga, da se dvigne nad zakon. Ko se prične razpad Jugoslavije, prekupčevanje s trgovskim blagom zamenja s preprodajo orožja. Sicer donosen posel prične ogrožati njegovo zasebno življenje in Belmondo se znajde na razpotju. Ali bo zaščitil družino ali pa bo osebno srečo žrtvoval za poslovne ambicije?

Šanghaj je zgodba o večnem hrepenenju po sreči, o ljubezni in družinskih vezeh, v kateri se solze mešajo s smehom. Dogajanje je postavljeno v čas razpada Jugoslavije. Film je posnet v izvirnem romskem jeziku.

Film se bo predvajal v nedeljo ob 19:30.
