Storyline

While cleaning offices at night, George learns a lot about the employees by examining what they leave behind, carefully choosing his targets, always disillusioned women whom he seduces, methodically taking their money. An artist of manipulation, with a generous dose of humor and the ability to assume different personalities, George begins to work in a psychologist's practice, where he learns of Hanna, a 30 year-old dancer who was hurt in a car accident and the daughter of a millionaire. The ideal victim if love doesn't get in the way. Written by Anonymous

Who are you ? - Thats a very good question...
30 August 2009 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

"People always believe what they had wished for. They let themselves fooled, in order to get what they want: the illusion that they can be somebody, that they are not alone, that there is a way out of this mess Illusion is expensive but it is worth it"

The film is about a male Cinderella. An orphan wants to be somebody from nothing. He wants no women nor career, he wants money. "If you have money: you are somebody". At least thats what he thinks. He makes money from seducing lonely girls and taking their money. He is a real sociopath, master of deceit, a man with many faces. But who is he actually? Asks an old man from him. "Thats a very good question..." Eventually he falls in love with one of his victims, thats where the plot gets more and more complicated. He gets stuck more and more into his own web. I tell no more not to spoil it. It is not cliché, rather it is filled with twists and with depth. The words this comment begun are really filled with meaning. The viewer sympathizes and in the same time despises the protagonist. And after the end we ask the same question: Who are we? What are my disguises? What do I really want? Am I being fooled?

Ervin Nagy's acting is just amazing. His expressions, his voice. Everything is in its place. The others are also all right. The music is suspenseful and smart. Not more not less than it is required for such a film. In case you are afraid that this might be a low quality eastern European product, this is not. This film is absolutely makes up for the world or American standards.

Thank you!
