Hajdu Szabolcs's first feature is a homage to the fascinating environment he grew up. A place where the blocks of flats fulfill the role of guardian angels and the rolling marbles represent both magic and gambling. Like dozens of miniature globes; the playgrounds are woods, oceans, and endless deserts. The world depicted in Macerás ügyek is a precise, clear-cut microcosm, with the rules only known by its inhabitants: actors and those people that once lived there.
Some of the best moments of the work are: a hilarious western parody scene between Zsoli and Brigi, and later Imi and Zsoli; an almost deadly wrestling event in a sauna; and a very intimate moment taking place at dawn.
Take the movie as a journey to your long forgotten past - wherever it took place - and you will surely enjoy this film a lot.
