Muggy heat, small-town bleakness, unspoken social problems, hierarchy fights. This is Tuzko town, somewhere in Hungary, nowadays. Here comes Misi who inherits his grandfather's house and his property. Misi is a disillusioned, frustrated, constantly refugee young man. He can't find his role in his life, his job and relationship. He starts to build and renovate the house with some men from the town, but it violates the local oligarch's interests. Hard struggle begins for the property, for the love and for the life.
Like many films of the last decades from East- Central Europe, more a diagnosis than a film. Because the themes are familiar- family, corruption, power and the stranger on mined territory. But the film is real great. For performances, for cinematography, for storytelling and for dramatism. And , off course, for the epic fights. But the film has another virtue - the clash between people and fair order, in this case represented by dog, bull or deer.The end- poetic , off course, could be better. But, not doubts, it is a precise diagnosis . And not only for Hungarian realities.
