I saw this movie ( Bolondok Eneke, Fool'Song in English) at Montreal Film festival , in September 2003, I think is a revelation, with lots of suspense, a lot of poetry in motion. A really European film, with a fabulous traditional music from Transylvania, very good actors and directing. Special mention for the cinematographer, a lovely picture. I recommend this film for all, who likes special and deep story about human characters and destinies and music, a little Kusturica feeling, a story of a young French doctor who finds himself in a transylvanian mental hospital, and who doesn't want to go out anymore. We'll discover another world, a special area of life, which we never saw before in cinemas, even in Milos Forman's " ...cocoo's nest...". A real surprise, a film you can't refuse...
