I AM NOT YOUR FRIEND is a film of improvisations - not only from the part of the nine amateur actors, but from the D.O.P, the director and the scriptwriters as well. The story unfolded itself instantly by the reactions and ideas of actors during the 20 days of shooting and developed into what is presented to the audience. But the story perhaps is less important than the world which opens up in front of us, a taste of Budapest in January 2008.Written by
A 13 minute documentary accompanies this film. Entitled "I Will Not Be Your Friend" it is a day in the lives of a group of 4 year old kindergarten students. See more »
An unknown and underestimated relative of Dogma 95
Despite the imrovisations the film has a very strong plot between the characters and the story makes sense, giving each one of them a specific conclusion. The big advantage of this film is its dark, urban atmosphere. Located in Budapest though gives the impression that could be anywhere in Europe. The hungarian language adds an extra level of strangeness.
Another strong aspect are the kinda musical parts, where each character signs a song which lyrics are represantative for his past or future.
A little gem that i have the luck to watch in Thessaloniki FIlm Festival and years later bought in a visit in Budapest.
