Then please test the following (assuming your input is actually telecined, if it is not the command is slow and makes little sense. Remember that soft-telecined is progressive and not telecined from FFmpeg‘s point of view):
$ ffmpeg -i input -vf fieldmatch out.mov

This will not produce perfect output but I believe it is a very useful start point for your quest.
