Very long, quite boring and especially depressive movie.
Compared to the film maker's last effort, "Friss Levegö", this movie does not stand out. The plot, about a nurse in the terminally ill department goes to seek her childhood friend, is not enough to keep attention. Besides, neither the main character, nor any of the side characters seem to have anything appealing to keep the viewer amused. All we see is gray buildings, unfriendly and non attached people; for one hour this is still okay, but given the length of this movie it is simply too long. I have watched this movie on DVD and had to take a break more than once, just because of boredom. Technically speaking, there were no serious flaws in the plot, but its appeal was simply not enough. If you have any choice, there are much better movies made in Hungary than this!
