This show is the best hungarian show ever. And I think currently one of the best shows in Europe. Why?
Because this series is brave to show the hungarian reality. Which is a brave move. It reveals all of the crimes, life-hacks,lies, nonchalance that happens every day, down the streets, and up in the luxury apartments.
It shows what is the life feels like in East-central-Europe. You live rightfully and poor or you do live with cheating, lying and perhaps, you get rich. Or you can go to a foreign country, and the people of the country exploit you. The truth seems like that way.
The morality is so strong point in the show. Attila, the father, who gives up his criminal career (like an anti-Walter White), but his past and his environment always pull him back. Janka, the mother, who never wants to give up her luxury lifestyle. She wants her lifestyle, want her family's livelihood, doesn't matter what it takes. Márkó, the son, wants money and money so he join to his godfather's gang and taste the darkness of the crime and power. Mira, the daughter after she finds out his father's crime she starts drink and party hard and escape from her family. A family will tear apart.
The series makes it with style, with tension. Great performances, spectacular cinematography (too much drone shot in the pilot, maybe).
So professional, if I were an American I wouldn't believe it's not an US's HBO product. So professional, so European, so hungarian.
I cannot wait till the second season arrives.
