Hilarious crime comedy, classic Hungarian of the 1980's!
16 February 2003 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Pogány Madonna is one of my ever favourite films, not only because it comes from my native country, but also because it's a terrific comedy. Set at Lake Balaton, at the popular resort districts of Balatonfüred and Tihany, this film features the classic Laurel-Hardy pair with two detectives: the gawky Dr.Kardos, played by one of the best contemporary Hungarian actors, András Kern, and the sailing maniac Csöpi (István Bujtor) who solves all the cases for his colleague. Set around the stealing of a museum relic, incorporating lots of sailing scenes on "the Hungarian sea", this film was a highly popular one in the early eighties when I was a child, as is still one ever since.
