I would like to apologize in advance, because I will not write about the artistic values of the movie. It is a subjective matter, let's everyone decide whether it is good or not.
I would like to mention two issues.
I am deeply shocked - even it was mentioned on the cinema's webpage - that a Hungarian movie can be played in a Budapest cinema in English language - without any Hungarian subtitle! Regarding the level of my English language knowledge - as I can write this review as well - I could understand everything. Taking into account the limits of my mental capabilities - but that is also my own problem.
But I find it extremely selfish, arrogant, "l'art pour l'art", and excluding point of view, that a Hungarian artistic product can only be watched in Budapest in English language! Personally, I would take this case to the proper Media Authority forum as well. The only thing that stops me, that there is no huge loss for the "only" Hungarian speaking audience, who's being excluded from viewing this movie. On the contrary...
My other issue.
The movie's central "character" is an old computer. Even it is a spoiler already, I don't want to mention it's type. As a child of the '80s, I was grown up with this machine. So... For God's sake! If you would like to highlight it as a certain type of computer, why put in our face a PC?! Even if it as old one, yes, but it is still a PC. It has nothing in common with "That" certain computer.
The other thing about it was almost painful. If you present Basic program language syntax on the cinema screen, PLEASE try to be at least a little more accurate! Believe me, as I am in my early '40s, there are some "old folks" as well living, who could have helped writing that ONE LINE syntax properly...
And last but not least. The disk shown in the movie had never been any connection and compatibility with that certain kind of computer...
In a minimalist movie like this, this small details matter, very much! And if they are that wrong, they can be painful.
I wish you best of luck and success for the movie, and for your future productions as well!
