Wonderful story about really lovable people with good sense of humour and soft sarcasm. If you are Hungarian and over 28 you will understand this film and you can discover a lot of familiar things at the background from the communist times as well.:) But if you are not that's not a problem either because you will enjoy this movie for other valuables. The funny connect between the ham father and the shy and distracted son is a good example about those who can't find a way how to communicate with their own child however they would like to. The other aspect of the movie shows how a guy handle his love life and sometimes cruel every days who have a big heart but a small will. The whole production shows courage because the makers can show their own world without any try to make it nicer than it is. They tried to show it very honestly and i believe it was a success. So i recommend it for everybody because it includes many other things which can touch you. It's about us really, but this is the Hungarian way.:)
