Storyline

A young immigrant is shot down while illegally crossing the border. Terrified and in shock, wounded Aryan can now mysteriously levitate at will. Thrown into a refugee camp, he is smuggled out by Dr Stern, intent on exploiting his extraordinary secret. Pursued by enraged camp director Laszlo, the fugitives remain on the move in search of safety and money. Inspired by Aryan's amazing powers, Stern takes a leap of faith in a world where miracles are trafficked for small change. Written by Viktória Petrányi

Another jewel in art movies
17 January 2018 | by szilveszterdomotorSee all my reviews

This movie as a Hungarian makes me a little bit nervous from the begging , the writer represent the country like it was in 1980-1990, I think the contrast about the reality and the presented Hungary is so big. Why I say this is a pure art movie: There is no chained explained story line, the script always blowing bubbles and they just "levitate" away. I think if it would not be advertise I would not watch it as Hungarian art movies are not touching my soul. I could see the presented contrast and puritan environment highlight out huge social problems, I think sometimes bit drastically , you will see episodes, which make no sense to this "minimal" story line, but blowing huge balloons blown.

I guess more than 50% of this movie is pure critics about the humanity, and compare global issues with personal problems, and sometimes the personal problem grows global. I am not sure if I could understand the whole movie, as it need a lot focus, and as it has no linear easy story line, but I think no one will as you can't find something, which is not in the movie:).

As a Hungarian I suggest it everyone who a little bit interested in drama, it will not move you closer to my country, but there are couple episodes of the movie, which will bind you to the monitor. I am rating the best parts of the movie, not the majority, 8 rating is the max in the movie, average i would rate it 5, from Hungarian movie industry it is the best movie in the last 2-3 years!
