Storyline

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 Steve Varadi <svaradi@sprynet.com>

This movie is a social trip
8 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I can see that it is not easy to fully understand this movie for someone not living in Hungary, or at least Central Eastern Europe. This excellent movie is a satirical depiction of the reality of a certain district of Budapest. More like a social trip than comedy. This movie is so much more than sex, I don't even remember too much sex in it. This is about the life of 'simple' people, their conflicts. The director's speciality is to make the movie look like a documentary, interviewing people. The funny part is that a number of the 'actors' interviewed in his films are not real actors and they just act like they would act in a real situation. So is this movie, perhaps the most famous among the works of Somjas.
