A man looking for the meaning of life.
30 November 2005 | by bogyo2See all my reviews

Here is a translation of "svaradi@sprynet.com"(I'm sorry but I don't your name). Very nice, lyrical comment; very hard to translate(and maybe not perfect). It is probably due to the fact of Hungarian language's richness.So here it is:

Zelk Zoltan, Krúdy, Huszárik and Latinovits's Szinbad is a film elegy with an odd, volatile atmosphere in lyricism almost surreal. Krúdí(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, aka death.
