Mail for translation. 1989-ben vagyunk, a kelet-europai szocializmusok osszeomlasanak nevezetes esztendejeben. Mindazonaltal a Roncsfilmnek egyetlen mozzanata sem utal e tortenelmi pillanat magasztossagara, ellenkezoleg, a vasznon burjanzo burleszk mozzanat-fuzerek mintha csak szamarfulet akarnanak mutatni a politikai felhoregiok gogos szinjatekanak. A film kopes gesztussal fordul a politika szamara megkozelithetetlen, profan, hetkoznapi letezes miszteriuma fele. A szinhely egy lerobbant, etelszagu lakotomb Golyanak nevezett kocsmaja es annak kozvetlen kornyeke. Bizonytalan, lecsuszott egzisztenciak elnek errefele: munkanelkuliek es alkalmi munkasok, zoldsegesek es taxisok, melegszivu svihakok es alkalmi szeretok. Csufak es gonoszak, lagyszivuek es hirtelen haraguak. Csupa kedves csirkefogo.Written by

I'm sure there are messages a plenty in this film but I had a hard time finding them amidst all of the sex and comic violence. I saw the film as a bunch of little vignettes designed to appeal to the common person. Which in this case is chaos and sex. After each brawl, the characters take time out for either flatulence or...sex. Did I mention that this movie has a lot of sex in it?
