Kata, in her 20s, loses her boyfriend and her job on the same day. She's been indulging in fantasies of a more thrilling romantic life, and the cold water of being alone and unemployed doesn't entirely dampen her imagination. She's egged on by three girlfriends who get together to talk about men and sex. Kata has possibilities: she meets David, a medical student; there's Tamás, a stranger on a train who might be good for a relationship and a job. There's also Miki, her brother who's had serious drug problems. Is fulfillment within her grasp? Written by
a lighthearted comedy and a deep movie at the same time; brilliant!
The story is about a girl who tries to be an independent woman in 21st century Eastern Europe.
It's a wonderful mix of Closer, Bridget Jones and Ally McBeal: this is the first movie since Ally McBeal where I saw someone pull those little flashback-daydreams off successfully; the brilliant mix of laughter and tears reminded me of Jude Law's and Clive Owen's performances in Closer, although in Terezanyu obviously the female performances are the more dominant and more polished ones. The acting of almost all of the characters, however, is very good. The photography is truly beautiful.
In my opinion, this movie could easily make its stand on the international market.
