Louis Gossett Jr.,
If it's true that good Hungarian movies are a rarity these days (and it is), then good Hungarian comedies are about as common as snowmen in hell. BOLDOG SZÜLETÉSNAPOT! (Happy Birthday!) is a terrific little movie... a fresh script, great casting, excellent performances, production values, etc. A top-flight debut for director Csaba Fazekas. Worthy of special mention are Tamás Sas' cinematography and Eszter Ónodi's show-stealing work as Vera/Gyöngyi. See this one if you get the chance. (Seen at Magyar Filmszemle/National Film Festival, Budapest)
