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
Very simple Movie with no big tension, no very big dramas, no very unforgettable scenes but it still works. This movie is for women, who will no doubt enjoy it more than men as this movie is about young (30-ish) women and their problems, their relationships, how they see men, women and the world. The book which it is based on was no doubt influenced by Bridget Jones's Diary: it is about a single girl who seeks The One. Still, the movie is much better than how the terrible second entry of the Bridget Jones series was; of course it is just not a straight stupid comedy but rather a sometimes funny, sometimes sad, melancholic, nice and light depiction of the female soul in the beginning of the 21st Century. Light but precise entertainment; nothing special but still a very enjoyable way to spend your time and money.
