Bad boys
23 June 2001 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I saw Witman fiuk five years ago at an Internacional Film Festival in my country. I went to this event with some friends. And after seeing almost 30 features, we were all sure that this hungarian film was the most incredible expierence. First of all, we should congratulate the cinematographer; the treatment of the light in this film is unique. Since "Barry Lyndon", nobody has worked with light candles in this way. And the story is amazing. It`s the kind of film you find funny and laugh a lot while you see it, but at the same time you know you wouldn`t be laughing at all. You might find that the time is slow, but it makes you entry at that bizarre enviroment.
