Beautiful love story
2 February 2005 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Közel a szerelemhez is one of my favorite love stories I have ever seen in Hungarian movie history. The film tells a story a love between a young, a bit simple-minded but lovable policeman (beautifully played Ferenc Hujber) and a Chinese immigrant girl. The two characters speak no common language, the only tool of communication between them is the international language of love. It's delightful how their relationship develops, how Karcsi overcomes his fears and prejudices and totally fell for the girl, even protects her from his own stupid colleagues.

The score and soundtrack of the film is excellent, the music by Anima Sound System just perfectly fits in the atmosphere of the film.

The only disturbing factor in the movie was that the Chinese character is played by a Japanese woman. Couldn't they pick a Chinese girl for the role? Or did they think that Hungarian audience were not able to make a difference anyway? Anyways, if you come across this movie, don't miss it!
