Brilliant!...
10 August 1999 | by cezeryeSee all my reviews

This is an unbelievable film from Hungary with an extraordinary atmosphere and plot. A meteorologist living in his sink, watching TV all day long; one day comes up with some men trying to use his genius on computers for cheating in horse-races. It is an astonishing quotation on what our communication age did to individual people. Perfect acting and cinematography. If you can, find it and see it!
