A witty satire about the last years of socialist system in Hungary
21 February 2004 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Even the starting point of the story is rather peculiar: from the office where she works a typist girl under the influence of nervous breakdown walks out to the street stark naked. A young physician goes by accidentally and tries to help her, spreading his coat over her nude body. Unfortunately it happens at a very special spot of the city, where politically oppositional, anti-communist people always demonstrate against the regime. Therefore this episode becomes a political matter, the young physician, though completely innocent is arrested by the suspicious police and his stable life turns upside down in a moment. The film tells the story of the disillusioned young man, who (after released by the police) tries to rearrange his own life. He rejects a scholarship given by the communist state, uncovers his boss' dirty tricks in the hospital where he works, breaks with his mistress, a spoiled wife of a communist chief, etc. At the end all the persons involved in the story take part in a Bunuel-like surrealist ring dance in "Lipótmezõ" that is the bedlam in Hungary. The film is full of sarcastic criticism and amusing episodes about socialist system in Hungary. Recommended mainly for those people who like sarcastic humour and a bit of surrealism.
