The crook flees to a mental home to escape the wrath of his victims. Written by alfiehitchie

Kovacs' favorite film
4 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I believe Kovacs said this was his favorite film. It's a quiet, measured comedy with good production values. It was the only real film in which Kovacs was the lead. I've always been interested in the big Hungarian, so any Kovacs movie has a built-in appeal for me. If you're not a fan of his, you might find Five Golden Hours ho-hum. Kovacs was never served that well on celluloid. His forte was exploring the possibilities of television, where he had freedom. With films, he was being packaged as a Hollywood product — not much room for Kovacs kreativity there. He made one more film after this one, Sail a Crooked Ship, which had some laughs.
