Budapeste
23 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Well, this might be the end result, a weird, surreal, and not terribly successful investigation into the sad love lifes of the aforementioned at Budapest I don't know what else to say about this flick except that it's got less naked Hungarian chicks than any other film I've ever seen.

I think it was trying to be a serious but not only could I not understand what was happening, I didn't care. The only plus point was that it was subtitled rather than dubbed. Main boy should have stuck to what he does best - lots of ladies' botBtoms, suspenders and seamed stockings. But the urge to shock and provide unstructured narrative was evident. still worth a watch
