A proper Hungarian movie
15 July 2014 | by arielisticSee all my reviews

I have never left a review on any movie before, but I was surprised by the bad reviews, so I decided to write my own one.

First of all, people were complaining about the 'bad acting', which was actually not horrible in my opinion, and it was the only dark spot of the film. Yes, I did not like the acting of the director, because of the accent he chose, but the others were quite good. The little girl, who played 'Lili', was annoying in the first 5 minutes, but when the story got more intense, how she acted was so real, actually so Hungarian.

I've never watched the trailers, and I am so happy I haven't. I did not know what to expect, so I got a shock in every 10 minutes. I felt sorry for the dogs, and actually cared about every character. Very exciting.

The ending is perfect, no more or less than needed. I loved it.

My advice would be: DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILERS, GET SURPRISED !
