Charming comedy from a bygone era
27 December 2004 | by (Miskolc, Hungary) – See all my reviews

In this Socialist-era comedy the unforgettable Kabos plays the Holló brothers: Sándor, who emigrated and became a rich man, and Zoltán, who stayed in Hungary and lives the life of an average working-class man. When Sándor visits his twin brother, they are constantly mistaken for each other, and when Zoltán sees how differently people treat Sándor because of his money and his foreign citizenship, he begins to like being mistaken for him - until he realizes that this means he will lose his girlfriend Szöszi... By showing both sides and over-emphasizing some differences the film mocks both the Socialist way of life and those who were bored of it and admired the lifestyle in the Capitalist countries.
