Mein Name ist

Posted in Movies by NAN on 2009/09/16

I find it strange that this movie’s called Mein Name ist Eugen because all of them–(L-R) Eduard, Eugen, Bäschteli, and Wrigley–really carried the movie together. If anyone took over, it was Wrigley who was the stubborn and dominant one, who even had his little love team storyline. The translated title Rascals on the Road did it better for me because it was more about that summer adventure search for the King of the Rascals Fritzli Bühler in Zurich. Playful storytelling that even duped about 1/3 (or more!) of the Cine Europa audience when “The End” flashed, which doesn’t happen just once. They probably were so embarrassed after standing from their seats that almost none actually returned even when the movie clearly went on. Reminds me of my own rascal days–just as earnestly pursued, just as carelessly lived.
