Lacks in depth, the one area where it desperately needs to succeed
23 May 2017 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Itt vagyok" or "Here I Am" is a Hungarian live action short film from 2010. it is among the more known filmmaking efforts by relatively young writer and director Bálint Szimler. The cast includes several members, such as lead actor Viktor Vida, who have absolutely no experience in film acting, but I still don#t think that's necessarily the biggest problem here. Szimler clearly went for the realistic approach just depicting normal life for the protagonist here and the outcome is basically a short poor man's version of "Frances Ha" or "A Coffee in Berlin" and I think these two films are accurate to mention because there the filmmakers also made a creative decision to go for black-and-white. Other than these you could also mention "Paterson" perhaps. But like I said this one here is sadly far from the quality level of all these I just mentioned. It runs for 35 minutes plus 3 minutes credits, but I found it difficult to really care for the character, let alone make a connection with him. Perhaps it also has to do with the characters he meets and also the dialog between them. I myself can just say that this one did not get me curious about Szimler's other works. Quite a shame. I hope he has managed to step his game up since 2010.
