Prince Nikki, Lieutenant of the Guard in pre WWI Vienna, is flat broke, but the only advice he gets from his parents is either to shoot himself or to marry money. During the Chorpus Christi parade his horse accidentaly hurts poor Mitzi, the daughter of inn-keepers in a Viennese suburb, who is, according to the wishes of her parents, going to marry the butcher Schani. When Nikki visits her at the hospital, they fall in love, much to the dislike of her parents and Schani. Nikki's parents, meanwhile have arranged a prospective marriage with Cecilia, the limping daughter of a very rich non-aristocratic industrial. Due to the fact, that Nikki's father is a general in the Austrian-Hungarian Army, resitance is useless. When Mitzi, after hearing of it, is still refusing Schani's proposal, he vowes to shoot Nikki when he leaves the church.

Tony P (fr) wrote: Ken Loach bores the audience with yet more stories of social woes in northern England.This time the film follows a down on his look guy played by Bruce Jones (famous as Les Battersby in Coronation Street) struggling to raise the funds for his beloved daughter's Catholic Church Communion dress.He resorts to any old job he can get some legal some illegal and eventually succombs to the local Mancunian loan shark.What makes me cringe with these Loach films are that everyone is made out to be broke yet the evil Tories are living in comfort. Total Communist bull as a Conservative Club caretaker says in the film.

Martin D (es) wrote: If a comedy is to be made from the plight of the homeless, who have to scrape through their days returning deposit bottles and cleaning car windshields to get their daily bread as the rich get richer and more heartless, it may as well be Mel Brooks' Life Stinks. The trademark Brooks humor dominates this fable about a ruthless billionaire, Goddard Bolt (Mel Brooks), who wants to obliterate a poor section of Los Angeles and build a high-tech commercial center in its place. His only problem is that he owns only half the land needed for the construction, the other half belonging to equally ruthless billionaire Vance Craswell (Jeffrey Tambor), who has his own ideas for the land. The two try to buy each other out until, finally, a deal is struck: Craswell bets that Bolt cannot survive a month on the streets as a homeless man. If Bolt makes it, he gets the property. If he doesn't, Craswell gets it. Bolt agrees and, as a poor man, he begins to feel the pain of being uprooted and alone, even meeting a friendly homeless woman, Molly (Lesley Ann Warren) with whom he forms an attachment.
Keenan S (jp) wrote: Class Of 1999 feels like a weird mixture of Mad Max, The Terminator, Robocop, a ghetto drama, some horror, and high school drama all rolled into one strange, but awesome concoction. The film has engaging storyline, plenty of action scenes, some contrived romance, gang wars, both funny and unintentionally moments, and then some. If you enjoy a good dose of action or weird sci-fi films, Class Of 1999 is worth seeking.

Lee M (nl) wrote: Between 4/10 and 5/10, it's so exceedingly earnest that one almost feels guilty having to criticize it. Never funny when it tries to be but frequently laughable when it wants to be taken seriously, the film is an overlong hodgepodge of dopey plotting and insipid delivery.

Carlos M (fr) wrote: A wonderful, good-old-fashioned Western that is compelling and amusing, blending humor and drama in a multilayered story centered more on the complex characters than on the action - and it has a lot of memorable dialogue and a perfect pacing that is careful but never slow.
