Shades of Bringing Up Baby, but without the leopard. And in Hungarian.
I don't know whatever possessed me to watch this (English title 'Much Ado About Emmi') but I'm sure glad I did! It's simply a hilarious movie, and the girl Emmi reminded me very strongly of Katharine Hepburn's Susan from Bringing Up Baby. She was totally and utterly mad, and determined to do anything and everything to get her man!
The only thing that bothered me with the movie was how, when a tramp stole Gabor's clothes (while he and Emmi were swimming), we never even saw him react. We just see him, in the next scene, happily walking along in the tramp's rags. What is with that? And when he accidentally set their rucksack alight. You'd think they'd stamp out the fire, rather than just watch it burn and go "oh well, there goes all our money!" Boy oh boy ;) But apart from that, I can find no fault. And the scene with Emmi singing is lovely, even if I had no idea what words she was saying!
