This bleak film has some striking images but the plot seems somewhat
threadbare and what story there is has been told better before. Bruno is a
bisexual? man who is living in the Hungarian countryside with Mari as the
pair dream of perfecting a circus act involving a balance beam and an
light airplane. Mari's brother is an out homosexual who pairs with Bruno
their frequent trips into the city. While in the city this pair turn
and do petty burglary.
Overall I didn't enjoy this film that much. Between my unfamiliarity with modern Hungarian life and the intermittent fantasy sequences in this film, I was unable to empathize much with these characters. I was hard pressed at some points to just follow the plot.
Low budget, low-level script, low-level talent and no regard for
characterisation, plot or dramatic unity reduce what could and should have
been a good film to the dregs. Forget this, order in Hungarian food, relax
with pics of Budapest and Comfort of Strangers.
Apallingly, that is better than this made-for film-fest (?) turgid, self conscious rubbish
