Highly atmospheric and unconventional
28 November 2010 | by (Olomouc, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

This little drama tends to keep everything simple yet mysterious. It all comes down to psychological aspects. If you are looking for action or a massive scale destruction, this is a wrong address. But if you enjoy small scaled, almost intimate drama, this is something to go for. You won't find any of those cheesy characters you all know so well here. They wouldn't fit in this deep and sad story about family bonds and relationships between mother, her son and all the other characters. Project Frankenstein is revolving around the main protagonist Rudy, who finds himself not to be welcome home and still have questions about his father whom he never knew. The pacing and whole atmosphere reminded me of another great Hungarian movie - Kontroll. Hungarian directors tend to have a very special feel for telling a story without revealing too much too soon. Director Kornel Mundruczo did his work right and brought to life characters that are vivid and believable. I can only recommend this interesting project to everyone who loves dramas revolving around moral dilemmas, family values and relationships. You probably wouldn't find any better this year.
