I don't get the love...
28 January 2018 | by remuseSee all my reviews

This movie was very well-received in Hungary, but after the trailers I already knew that I won't pay for it. It just looked cheap without taste. The hype couldn't fool me. Tonight, when I saw it on HBO, I just... couldn't get it. How can people really like this film? It has such primitive angles and camerawork, like in a telenovella 10 years ago; a script is a hungarian fake historical soap opera; the costumes 'hungarosteampunk' or what - well, for the creativity I would give it a pass, if it didn't look soooo cheaaap, like made of plastik. The actors and actresses did what they could with the material, which of course couldn't be much.

Maybe the love for this film comes from sentimental patriotism, I can't believe anyone could seriously appreciate this fim, who isn't hungarian. The patriotism of the movie is so cheap and foced it is ridiculous - just like the austrians fake mustache, who are obviously the parody of themselves The only likeable charakter is the Horse, who is cool, because...horses are cool. You just can't mess up that one. Just everything else...
