Storyline

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 György Pálfi

An interesting method does not guarantee quality
8 February 2010 | by peter-toth-656-165434See all my reviews

A film of improvisations? It sure sounds interesting. Sadly, the results are less than stellar. The plot is neither exciting nor touching, and it only gets messier and less focused during the film. The acting is in some parts pretty good but many of the dialogues are stale and unconvincing - as are the characters themselves. Here the lack of a good script really shines through.

During the screening I was to, some of the audience left before the end. I stayed, but I don't really know for what. Despite some good moments, I felt I had wasted my time. At the end of the day, this is more of an experiment than a real film, surely more interesting and fun to the cast and crew than to the audience.

P.S. The description ("...a taste of Budapest in January 2008") implies that the city itself plays some sort of role in the plot, or that the audience will at least get a glimpse of the city and of city life. Neither of this is true, which disappointed me.

P.S.S. The accompanying film with kindergarten kids was really good. Those kids outshine the adult cast in "Nem vagyok a barátod".
