The powerful and famous TV-personality, Frau Plastic Chicken is providing a live coverage of a brutal serial killer's arrest by the police in her show, namely Nexxt. In the meantime as for a filling in of the gaps, of the time intervals without action her show is dealing with the life of Clockwork Orange's protagonist after the ending of the book and trying to show the motivation for brutality through his previous and present life and the difference between these two. Frau Plastic Chicken is not afraid to use anything to provide her audience with excitement. Everything is welcome, let it be however radical and/or expensive.Written by

In my opinion Nexxt was meant to be a disdainful smile to the Hungarian television and its audience. However, reducing the number of shocking elements of the film could have resulted in two things. First, it could have reached much more people (in Hungary it was declared to be so scandalous that very few people had the chance to watch it uncut in cinemas). Second, and more importantly I wouldn't have felt it necessary to watch it fast forward at certain parts (I didn't). But altogether it's a very brave, self-destructive (at parts) attempt, and it really succeeds in making us laughing at ourselves. It certainly smashes the Hungarian meant-to-be-megahit Hídember. As for the actors, they couldn't have been chosen any better. Especially Udvaros Dorottya sparkles and spits her great lines in our face. She's so stunning. In a part, where she could've tried to make it very-very big, she manages to find a balance and correctly recognizes that the film is already over-exaggerated, her performance plays a crucial role in making us having nightmares about the film. The rest of the cast (especially Bodó Viktor) is also very remarkable. Gets a 6.
