Storyline

In a small village in Eastern Hungary, Jóska is on his way home from the pub. Behind Jóska's back, Mari, his spinster sister, sends love-letters in his name to Yelizaveta, the daughter of an Ukrainian family they know. She thinks Yelizaveta will agree to marry him, hoping for a better life in Hungary. Yelizaveta works in a brick factory in Beregszász. Now she is waiting for Jóska at the train station of the small Ukrainian town. The morning after, an Ukrainian truck takes Yelizaveta and her stuff to Hungary. Jóska, still dead drunk, is placed on the platform of the truck. They arrive at the small farm in Hungary. The Ukrainian driver asks Yelizaveta: "Sure you want to stay here?" Her answer is definite: "I am going to live here." She dreams of learning Hungarian and of starting to work. She soon gets pregnant, however, and has problems communicating with the local people. Standing on a ladder, she paints the pigeon-house in the yard, though her belly is huge already. When Jóska comes ... Written by Gábbbor <gabbbor@freemail.hu>

It is about a woman from Ukraine getting married to a Hungarian penfriend. The Hungarian man went to Ukraine to pick her up to bring back to Hungary to have a wedding. She moved to Hungary thereafter. Before the marriage she imagined that Hungary is very beautiful, and that the man was very nice. However, it turned out that the man is an alcoholic and treated his family very bad. He would get drunk every night, and beat his wife and daughter up very severely. In the end the whole family, ie the man's wife and daughter and even the man's sister and father had to escape.

I have a lot of feelings when I watched the film. I felt very sad. First of all, her dreams of getting a better life was completely shattered on the first day she went to Hungary, when the husband was completely drunk in the wedding ceremony and acted very foolishly. Secondly, when I saw the domestic violence scenes, it broke my heart totally. Domestic violence is very shameful, and yet it occurs in every country. It really hurted my heart to see the husband beating the wife up for no reason, or for very unreasonable reasons. Thirdly, because the man got drunk everyday and every night, he acted very foolishly and was very irritable. All his family members were afraid of him. It was such a hard life for all the family members. All of them lived in fear every day. I felt very upset about the family's situation.

I like this film a lot because it took a less serious approach to deal with a sad topic. When the man is drunk, he would do very foolish things, such as trying to get through a locked door without opening it, and then the glass pane on the door broke, and the man fell inside of the house. When he fell inside, he fell onto a cat and the cat was killed! There were many funny scenes in the movie, and of course there were many sad scenes too.

I hope this film will be watched by more people, because I think it is really worth watching.
