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
We enjoyed this movie because it was a lighthearted comedy but it never settled into the clichés of that genre. Compared to something like You've Got Mail or Amelie it contained complex and interesting characterizations. It was maybe a little too long, but it was fun. There were many amusing little portraits in it, like the mother who couldn't stand to tell her neighbors that the daughter wasn't getting married. The role played by Csányi Sándor was delightful. There is a montage of girlfriends attending a singles club that is very poignant and concise and then later the mood created there underlies some of the more slapstick aspects of the courtship rituals.
