The best Hungarian motion picture ever made... bar none...
18 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

I demand this film on DVD at once!!!

By the way, this is the best ever Hungarian motion picture, although one must admit that it is not to everybody's appeal, but if you are familiar with theatrical lingo and methods, nothing can beat this picture, for it is hilarious and deeply philosophical at the same time, poking fun at too many things to count.

The story is basically a satirical tale of the adaptation, casting and rehearsal of a theatrical version of Winnie-the-Pooh, an adaptation set apart from all others by the fact that this is a naturalistic version (with "believable" animals), not the Disneyfied version we all loathe. In order to create the show, "Libi bácsi", the producer/director utilizes the famous Stanislavsky-method, forcing his bunch of actors (more like meter-readers, sociopaths and grandmothers) to "live" their parts. All this leads to disaster...

Special kudos go to the creators for casting Diósi Gábor as the wife (?) of Libi bácsi, who performs excellently without any mannerisms usually seen when a man performs the role of a woman, so none of the usual man-in-drag jokes this time...

For Hungarian viewers the casting scenes are maybe the best, because they show how Libi bácsi selects his actors, turning down the most famous Hungarian actors (who do unbelievably funny cameos) - of course international viewers won't see the point, though they may laugh at the routines Libi bácsi prescribes for the wannabe actors.

I hope one day it will be released on DVD, together with the short films the directors had created before Libiomfi, which are also modern classics in their own right.
