Jēkabs, Mimmi and the Talking Dogs
Jēkabs, Mimmi and the Talking Dogs (Jēkabs, Mimmi un runājošie suņi), dir. Edmunds Jansons, 70′, Latvia, 2018
When Dad takes his seven-year-old son Jēkabs from a spacious flat in the Quiet Center of Riga to the city’s squalid Moscow District to spend his summer there, the inquisitive boy discovers a previously unknown world. He meets his uncle, the former seaman Ērglis, and his niece, the self-confident know-it-all Mimmi. And he eventually also makes friends with the Boss – the leader of the talking dogs. Will the kids manage to become a united team and together with the talking dogs save the neighborhood from the rich tycoon Imants Rausis, who wants to turn the romantic district into an impersonal area of glass skyscrapers and shopping centers?
