Magic.
17 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Wow, what a film. Enyedi is a masterful director and the blend of fantasy, myth, magic, and spy-oriented suspense in this film is wonderful. Dialogue, acting, story, action, it's all here; wrapped in a mystical package that will keep your eyes dazzled and your mind buzzing even after the end. Anyone who sees this film will get caught up in it. Luckily, it was made in English, so it's a great chance for anti-subtitle viewers to experience Enyedi and perhaps get interested in Hungarian films. Highly recommended.
