the mood is great, the story is not
30 December 2020 | by mbrcfSee all my reviews

This film does a fairly good job at drawing a moody, atmospheric european cinema not unlike Krzysztof Kieslowsk's works. The streets and bridges of Budapest as the story's setting, the score, the camera work and direction all become together to enchant us as viewers in a somewhat magical mystery-romance piece.

The storyline and the narrative though, is when the film fails to keep up with those virtues. The main character falls in love with a man who does not appear to recognise the face of the former and thus the mystery commences with a series of stalkings, conversations and events which lead to the upfilting of the mystery. But when that uplifting happens, it's just not merely interesting or impactful to leave its mark. The film could have definitely been much stronger had it had a deeper, more detailed and structured script.
