Dexter Morgan would like this investigation
1 June 2009 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

A Hungarian film noir at its best, nothing less. We have an half authist pathologist, Tibor Malkav, whose mother is dying in cancer, and a mysterious and dangerous looking stranger makes an offer to him: our wood-faced hero should assassinate an unknown man, and he gets the exact sum for his mother's medical treatment in Sweden. After completing the job, and with the money in the pocket, Tibor gets a letter from his victim, addressed to him, and the investigation begins... I cant write more without spoiling, but I assure you, that the whole storyline is crafted at this level, powering with unbelievable good acting. I assume that very well made English subtitling is needed for proper experience, according to the review with 1/10 point...
