Midsummer Madness is a quirky romantic comedy set in Latvia, the former Soviet republic, on the shortest night of the year. The whole country is going crazy on midsummer night when Curt, a young American, arrives in Riga, and the festivities are about to start. He's there to look for his Latvian half-sister and hates the place from the moment they fingerprint him at the airport. He sure as hell doesn't feel like partying, but somehow, events of the night, and a very persuasive taxi driver make him see things differently, so much so that by the morning he doesn't bat an eyelid when he sees a kangaroo being wheeled into a hospital for treatment. A classic, slapstick, comedy of errors, from arguably the most vibrant filmmaking hotspots in today's Europe.
