Classic comedy from the age of innocence
31 August 2002 | by bdosSee all my reviews

This is a kind of 'comedy of errors' with some brilliant acting performance. This kind of movies were made one after another in the 1930's Hungary, so you can make yourself a good 100 minutes seeing it, but surely this won't change your view of life. A light play around a 'dram-car' and of course love, where the rich car-salon owner fells love with a poor, but attractive young girl. To reach her hands, he makes as if she had won the car as a prize, and to get close to her, he offers his service as a chauffeur with sharing the income to prove that he's poor too. At the end of course everything turns out and we get the casual happy end. Sadly, the best piece of action, the wonderful way of Gyula Kabos's speeches and dialogues is only meaningful for Hungarian viewers.
