8 March 2011 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

With barely 10 million people living in the country it is not too easy to make a Hungarian film vehicle profitable. As craving for the "masses" producers heavily focus on romantic comedies resulting that around 90% of Hungarian mainstream cinema represents a cheap copy of some already bad Jennifer Aniston movie. Seemingly this is what people agree to put some bills down for while taking out their gals. So I'm not to hot for Hungarian cinema, generally.

Now with this in mind, I need to say, that Poligamy, while managing to be watchable with your average girlfriend tries to incorporate a good deal of originality and a fine artistic quality which it does rather well. I'm not saying, that this movie will blow your mind, but as a matter of fact, Poligamy does a fairly good job getting it's message through on an emotional level, which is very refreshing as opposed to having the actors look into the camera, verbally explaining to you what every scene is about (yes, Mr. Nolan, you may now go ahead and be ashamed of yourself). This is something you barely find in mainstream cinema, neither here, nor in Hollywood.

For the bad parts, I can't restrain myself in pointing out what a limited actor lead Sándor Csányi is but to be totally fair, his basic charisma (whatever it is with him) somehow gets him trough this flick. Now generally, while looking for good acting in this movie equals a job search as a business executive in central Congo, at least it might cheer you up when some of it shows up - now and then. Regarding the humor, while you might not go lol in particular, there is constantly something to giggle about and the movie certainly has it's moments.

Now regarding the "arguable" aspects. If you can't take the "bizarreness" of the movie, if you need every bit of a story spoon fed over and over again, then it really is best if you go back to the mentioned Jennifer Aniston projects. There is nothing that can't be understood here, may it be on an emotional, or an intellectual level. It just isn't you're usual story, that's about it. And for me, this is exactly why I give the movie a 7/10 and congratulate to talented director and writer Dénes Orosz, also adding my condolences, for that seemingly just a minimal amount of abstraction already scares away audiences. This might be one of the reasons we're operating on such a low level here (and also "there").
