Sixty Six First 5 Minutes

British Director Paul Weiland comes with Sixty Six, a nice comedy through which he reveals some of his own childhood.

Here below the first five minutes of Sixty Six:

The scene showing the selection of players for the football teams is rather funny: children can be so heartless sometimes! And what a crazy family really! A great movie.

Sixty Six Theatrical Trailer

The theatrical trailer of Sixty Six, upcoming hilarious movie that nicely mixes both British and Jewish humors, is now available:

The makers of Four Weddings and Funeral would like to invite you to a bar mitzvah.


Some like Wall-E may enjoy to play soccer (Wall-E Soccer), but one can understand why this young British Jew boy is worrying for his bar mitzvah: difficult indeed to compete with the 1966 World Cup, even more when England has reached the finale.

Sixty Six, 66, looks like a really nice movie. I recommend it!

Sixty Six Official Trailer

Some movies from abroad take time to reach US shores. Well it took 2 years to Sixty Six to do so! Sixty Six is a comedy coming from the United Kingdom. The movie, directed by Paul Weiland, is about a young jewish boy whose bar mitzvah in 1966 is unfortunately concurrent to the football World Cup finale (soccer).

Sixty Six is slated for a limited release in early August 2008.

Here below the official trailer of Sixty Six:

From the makers of "Billy Elliot" and "About A Boy"


The plot:
"The protagonist, a Jewish boy named Bernie Reubens, is about to have his bar mitzvah. Initially, he meticulously plans a lavish reception to upstage that of his older brother Alvie, but as the family's finances lurch from one disaster to another his family are forced to lower his expectations and stage the bar mitzvah reception at home in North London. When England reach the 1966 football World Cup Final, most of the guests make excuses not to come to the reception so that they can watch the game." (Source: Wikipedia)

A nice comedy with some Jewish and British humor that even American goys (or Jews) may enjoy!

It's his year, and he wants it back.


This new US poster looks kind of vintage it's obviously in purpose but I think they should have kept the former UK poster which was much more telling:

It was Bernie's big day, but there was a little competition.


Not always easy to be a child, hopefully it get better for them when they grow up!
