Storyline

Tamás is a young, Budapest-based director of video clips and commercials who dreams of directing his first feature film with the title 'The Guilty City'. He has already written the script but does not have the means of financing his project. Thus when he surprisingly gets an email from American film producer Alex Brubeck who writes that he had liked the script and would like to meet him personally, Tamás sees all his dreams come true. With the help of his two brothers Ákos, a successful manager and sex maniac, and András, a poet and complete loser, he tries to make a good impression on the American and persuade him to finance the film project. But there are some surprises on the way... Written by meitschi

Great comedy with non-stop laughs!
26 February 2004 | by (Hell:P) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. Original, funny, I almost fell of my chair when I laughed. One of the best comedies EVER. I don't know how many other countries was it released in and how understandable are the jokes for foreign people, but it was a great succes here, in Hungary. Excellent performances by Eszter Ónodi, Gyõzõ Szabó, Tibor Szervét, Gábor Reviczky, Ferenc Hujber and Ila Shütz, the only weak link of the cast was Csaba Pindroch (but I think he looked very good:P). And the ending...I could imagine ANY ending, but this, but it was excellent and hilarious! I have it on dvd, watch it over and over, but never get sick of it! Watch it, at least once!
