“Public Disorder” Joanna Cake saied, the host of Movie Clip Wednesday. I have a problem with “public disorder”, simply because there seems to be no adequate german translation. Öffentliche Ruhestörung can range from being drunk on a public place (sitting on a park bank with a can of beer and a cigarette can be a kind of offense in some cities) to major hooligan riots destroying the inner city district of the “enemy” club’s town. That would be no more Vergehen (offense) but a major Verbrechen (crime).
In the end all films are about breach of rules, about what one does, does not and why. Maybe superheroes, male and female, are a kind of exception: I mean this Rambo bloke singlehandedly flattens a small town and somehow one can not be angry with him. One wants to pat him on the head and say: Stop sobbing, bubbele, blow your nose and vanish in the woods.
But there are forgotten superheroes. And I bet none of my dear readers remembers Cleopatra Schwartz. She solves problems, burns down the ghetto, and manages to be the good god fearing wife of rebbe Schwartz – a true example and inspiration for all of us. And she spurs singlehandedly the national weapon industry, he would be proud of her.
So see this little snippet about Cleopatra Schwartz – hope you enjoy it!
