This bleak film has some striking images but the plot seems somewhat threadbare and what story there is has been told better before. Bruno is a bisexual? man who is living in the Hungarian countryside with Mari as the pair dream of perfecting a circus act involving a balance beam and an ultra light airplane. Mari's brother is an out homosexual who pairs with Bruno on their frequent trips into the city. While in the city this pair turn tricks and do petty burglary.
Overall I didn't enjoy this film that much. Between my unfamiliarity with modern Hungarian life and the intermittent fantasy sequences in this film, I was unable to empathize much with these characters. I was hard pressed at some points to just follow the plot.
