Storyline

So what is this film? Its style is mostly surreal or rather eclectic, something between the surreal past and the surreal future. An urban road-movie, an unrequited love story. Words that catalyzed our fantasy while making this film were: pizza, red, cheese, the eclipse, a 68' Mustang, sky-scraper, ocean, waves, palm trees, surf, beach, old-school, high-techno, art deco, perspective, chequered, surfpunk. A bit surreal, this comedy is based on the everyday desires and visions of the X Generation. Faces, stories, cool talk, friendship, love and dreams follow one another until the unavoidable happy ending. Written by Gábbbor <gabbbor@freemail.hu>

Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!

This is one of the few movies I couldn't watch for more than 30 minutes. Not because it's gross, violent or something like that. It's just plain BAD! And when I say bad, I mean ANNOYINGLY bad! I like bad movies: Ed Wood movies (very entertaining), Lucio Fulci movies (visually great, otherwise trash), etc. But the makers of this movie wanted it look like a big-budget American movie and the result is laughable! For example: the "car chase" at the beginning. The cars were SLOW! The editor could have helped with some close shots of the wheels, or something like that, but nobody cared! Two slow cars race each other and the audience should feel like they were watching "Bullitt" or "The French Connection" at least! The "star" of the movie has no acting talent at all, but the bigger problem is that he has no charisma as well. He's just a weird looking, annoying guy, who makes Freddie Prinze, jr. look like Marlon Brando! The makers also wanted to fill the dialogues with one-liners and "language-jokes", which are hard or impossible to translate. And the result is shameful as well.

But the biggest problem with the movie is that it's generally not credible. The tone is fake (as hungarians say: "mumajer"). The makers are not dumb or without talent (some kind of limited talent, mainly in music video-making and commercials), but they want their product to look really COOL. They fail.

I used to think that "Magyar Vándor" was bad. I've changed my mind: that "Monty Python and The Holy Grail"-ripoff was a carefully made art-comedy compared to this sh*t!
