Feró Nagy who played Pro dubbed Andrew Dice Clay in the 1990 movie, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. Because Feró is a well-known singer and a pop Icon, but neither an actor, nor a voice actor, he did a tremendous job - literally and metaphorically - as Clay voice. So memorably bad only that voice acting made that movie an instant cult classic in Hungary (The Adventures of Ford Fairlane was a big flop every other country in the world). He was a tagline "eszem faszom megáll" he said that when Clay said "unfucking believable". He's got the roll only that line in Argo. Árpa ask him use that much as he can. See more »
Quest for the Golden Owl - Attila Árpa a former Hungarian reality-show producer wanted to make an action movie that his country's never had before. Árpa admittedly borrowed certain patterns from the masters of the genre: Tarantino, Ritchie and Kusturica. However, his product turned out much better than it first sounded (the makers managed to attract a lot of attention to their work when it was in progress). Most of the elements has been seen before, but Hungarian environment and sarcasm add a fresh tune to this slowly decaying type of movie. The filmmakers didn't waste much time with the story: it's a great challenge with time and the opponents for the fabulous treasure, an ancient barbarian golden owl named Styx Aurum. The three completely different gangs are running amok countrywide and stop only when they reach the finish line. The film is pulsing until the last minute, so you don't have time to get bored. The great performances of the Hungarian actors(none of them well known)must be mentioned: they make their characters really believable. The only problem will be about the translation of the diction, because the language is so inventively mean, that it can be hardly translated. Time will tell, but this doesn't change the fact that it is a well-made and very dashing film.
