Elegy with an odd, volatile atmosphere in lyricism almost surreal
22 October 2007 | by gapt-1See all my reviews

This film seemingly chronicles the exploits of a Casanova in the early years of the 20th century. Sensual Szindbad (Zoltan Latinovitz) leaves behind broken hearts and fond memories when he moves from one woman to another. Some of them, overwhelmed by their tragic attachment, seek to have him join them in a suicide pact, others carelessly toss their lives away. He remains fundamentally untouched, but he finally gets his comeuppance - he is dying Krúdy, Huszárik and Latinovits's Szinbad is a film elegy with an odd, volatile atmosphere in lyricism almost surreal. Krúdy(the writer) is identified in the film as Szinbád. He's looking for the meaning of life, eternity on the ship of memories - preoccupied in the beauties of nature, music, nice women, girl's hair, strokes, sensitive walks, tearful hours, grievous farewells. The attracted women offer lasting love, and for that very reason he he proceeds to the upcoming in wonderful colours of life and resignation generative passing, death.
