Budapest, Hungary post-2015: watch it if you'd like to see more clear
17 November 2019 | by drazsika-716-814820See all my reviews

I'd recommend this movie to all people deeply interested in Budapest, Hungary these days.

It's a slow paced movie about a black, African refugee speaking intermediate Hungarian living in the capital trying to get Hungarian citizenship. It'll give you insights in Hungarian bureocracy, society, way of thinking and life of today.

Besides appearing on Netflix, the sign that made me watch it was that I met the main actor driving a tram: he's an actual African person living in the country for decades.
