Trivia

The scene when Maria and Áron first meet, the girl talks about her grandmother who died because of an infection she got from biting her nails and Áron should stop doing that, too, if he doesn't want to die. Actor Áron Ferenczik had no idea what she said until somebody could translate it to him during a school event where the film was shown in March 2015. See more »

Homage to Budapest, 2015
5 August 2015 | by drazsika-716-814820See all my reviews

Interested in how life is in Budapest in 2015?

Here you'll find a great testimony of a 29-year old and his group of friends: Budapest people that could be any of us. The main character, Aron is after university, after a break-up and before knowing what he'd really like to do with his life.

While couple scenes are set in Lisbon, Portugal the movie really is about Budapest featuring popular pubs, restaurants, well-known streets and squares, the atmosphere of the Budapest night and the life and thoughts of close-to-30 and little-after-30 guys.

Have your calculator ready for counting how's the salary of the guys in euro/usd or any well-known currency and have your ears ready for Hungarian language. After the movie you won't mix up Bucharest with Budapest, guaranteed!
