A modern fairy tale
15 October 2011 | by szallerSee all my reviews

The film is not about the countryside, not about the Hungarian way of living, not even about the decade it was made in, but much more. It's a beautiful movie about choices and learning to accept what we are meant to do in life. Yes, we can dream about something more, but eventually we must learn to cope with our (small or big) failures, and then join the life set out for us. The one that wishes for an average life is laughed at, but the one that realizes what to do to achieve it is the hero of this movie. He's choosing Eastern Sugar, the most obvious choice but he has to go far before he can see it. The final scene with the binoculars is outstanding.
