"Szezon" shows the worst false stereotypes for me about the countryside people - from the point of view of a downtown snobbish (however talented) filmmaker. I think his imagination about the outside world of Budapest city (where the director's previous film, titled "Moszkva tér" is settled) is not quite accurate. After the brilliant Moszkva tér" (that was meant for a special tight target audience which understand the special punch line perfectly) "Szezon" is just a disaster to my mind. Truly, there's no action, in fact the characters are acting on a nonsense way like rarely in the Hungarian reality. This is my impression. However the cinematography is not bad, but not enough for keeping you in front of the screen!
