Mr. Nice

Synopsis: Mr Nice is the true life story of Howard Marks who was born into a coal mining family in South Wales in 1940's and then made it to Oxford University to study nuclear physics during the swinging sixties. With the help of fellow students, Marks built a worldwide marijuana smuggling network which became responsible for the majority of the drug smoked in the Western world during the 1970s and 1980s. Marks' adventures led him to have dealings with the CIA, PLO, IRA and the Mafia and he even became an MI6 agent himself for a period. Howard Marks is played by the brilliant Rhys Ivans, who won much acclaim for his portrayal of the folk hero.

- Hold it in. Hold it in.

- That's good.

See, I've heard

that hash makes you sex mad.

Well, that's one thing they're right about.

Hey, Howard, you barbarian!

- That's my girlfriend.

- Sorry, Mac.

Give me a kiss.

Smoking kif gets a bit pathetic.

Not when you've got some opium.

It's the great absolver.

- Is that LSD?

- The power...

The voltage of the city

running through your mind. Try it.

Here we go.

- Do you chew it or suck it?

- Suck it.

All right. I'm sucking.

- I can't feel a fucking thing.

- Give your head a rub, man.

Get it clean into your brain.

Oh, fucking hell!

It's fucking mental!

HeIp me! Somebody heIp me!

HeIp me, somebody!


Oh, f*ck!

All right!

I fucking can't even harm my foot!

My fucking foot!

Ow, my fucking foot!

My fucking foot!

The Dean got the charges dropped

as aII they couId find on me was a roach.

But l was warned,

knuckIe down and study.

So I stopped smoking marijuana,

read as much as I couId,

and graduated from Oxford University

with a second-class degree.

AIthough we reveIIed

in each other's company,

I have no idea why IIze and I

took the extraordinariIy impracticaI step

of getting married.

We moved to London.

We had no money, and our prospects

were as two poorly paid teachers.

We must set a good example.

Long hair and colourful clothes do not.

I think a three-piece suit should be worn

under the gown...

I had gone straight just when

the rest of the country had started to swing.

- I've put acid in the punch, so...

- Oh f*ck, I've got to be careful.

You know?

We're not smoking weed.

- How long?

- Six months.

- Six fucking months?

- I'm teaching now. I can't smoke.

- Did you start freaking out, or...

- No. No, no.

- You see the world the way it is.
