My wife and I saw Lora last night and we both loved it. She was struck by the genuineness of Lucia Brawley's performance; in my wife's words, "she was three-dimensional." I agree. Though portions of the plot take dips into darker human emotion and character, Lora's smile and the subtle crescendo of love keep the movie out of the melancholic. Unlike a previous commenter, I had no trouble with Lucia's lack of Hungarian dialogue nor did it seem like the language issue effected the cast. In fact, there seemed to be real chemistry amongst the cast which made for a overall cohesion storyline and energy. As viewers we have very little insight into the whys of filmaking perhaps we should be more concerned with the end product. If the dubbing was distracting to some I suspect that the subtitles were to others. Too often we get caught up in searching for imperfection and identifying things we disagree with, i.e. a movie's use of liberal imagery, subtitling or dubbing. Too bad...because you missed a great movie.
