I recently saw this at the 2007 Palm Springs Festival of Short Films and it's a delightful little comedy from Hungarian writer/director Márton Szirmai in his film debut in both roles. Based on a short story by Hungarian humorist András Nagy Bandó, a man goes to an outdoor lunch diner and orders the most common and popular item on the menu, Tripe & Onions with a raspberry soda and a pack of spearmint gum. Also at the diner is a disheveled homeless looking man and the two end up having their lunch together. Zsolt Anger, Tamás Ascher and László Kálday star as the the diners and their casual observer. Award winning cinematographer Gergely Pohárnok photographed this for probably no pay. This is a comedy played deadpan straight from beginning to end with a twist for the comedic payoff. I really enjoyed this very modest and very low budget short and I would give it an 8.5 out 10.
