First of all, I would say that Demimonde is a new masterpiece of Hungarian filmmaking, and it's really Hollywood-level. It's highly recommended to anyone who likes dark-toned crime dramas with an interesting plot, strong, well-written characters, beautiful cinematography, and very good directing. The acting is just amazing too: Patricia Kovács gives an award-winning performance -quite unexpected from her- as one of the most famous gold-digger prostitutes of Budapest in the early 1900's. We can really believe her that she can seduce any man she wants. Laura Döbrösi's character is, at least at the beginning, the complete opposite to Patricia's, but she does a great job too. This young actress has a bright future in the movie industry, that's for sure. János Kulka and Dorka Gryllus are very good too, as usual from them. The costumes, the writing, the setting, etc. are also excellent. I think I've written enough...people, when you have the opportunity, just watch it! Especially, if you're a fan of European movies. You won't regret it.
