Paczolay Bela has directed a very funny comedy film. This is a new trend in Hungarian comedy cinema.
If you ask an erudite film admirer about Hungarian cinema,a definite reply would surely concern its over the top,sad,grim films made during the harsh times of communism.This is not something which Hungarian people enjoyed as in the past even their comedy films had a trace of communism in them.Now the situation is different for Hungarian cinema as current times have changed enormously and Hungarian nation has chosen to embrace capitalism and free market economy.All these changes have had a very significant impact on Hungarian cinema and various positive results are being made evident in new films which are coming out of Hungary.It is in this sense that we can all hail Paczolay Bela's film "Kalandorok" as a true comedy film from East European nation of Hungary.This film is very much relevant to all of us in the current period of economic turmoil where each penny is spent wisely by people all over the world.Kalandorok shows the economic mess in which some ordinary Hungarians have put themselves.The film is a grim reminder of how this economic upheaval impacts their family ties. Kalandorok can also be defined in an alternative manner as a sensible road movie with comic undertones.It features some particularly nice musical tracks such as About A Girl Kurt Cobain and a Hungarian version of the famous French song "Le Vent Nous Portera" by Noir Désir.Kalandorok is a comic film different from traditional psychological films for which Hungary has always been famous.This must be kept in mind if somebody decides to rent or watch this film.
