I just saw this very funny road movie premiered in Hungary. I try to summarize it without any spoilers. There's an old couple, the man is 81, the woman 70, and they live in the post-communist Hungary like hundreds of thousand other pensioners do: in very modest circumstances to put it mildly. They are unable to pay their bills and threatened by the utility suppliers. One day the old man gets fed up and robs a post office with his 1958 GAZ, the one-time luxury car of communist party leaders. The old couple flees to the country-side from the police chasing them. There is a young couple of police officers, the woman being the boss of the man. They are assigned to the case. The movie is partly about the differences between (very) old-age couples and young couples today. In summary, it is a very likable comedy, a road movie understandable to any audience outside Hungary as well.
