Great dialogs, great scenes and all about You...
30 May 2003 | by (Frankfurt am Main, Germany) – See all my reviews

One of the greatest newage hungarian writer Santa Ferenc's book is digging very very deep into the human being and the human nature. Fabry, the director chosen the best actors, and made one on the best hungarian movie. You have to see it more than few times, to pick up everything. Its all about life, about war, with amazing questions you cant even answer...

You must read the book!!!

egy csodálatos film.
