Comrade Fábián (Zsolt Nagy), the Hungarian hero of the Cuban revolution, comes home to take part in a blood drive for Vietnam, the communist sister nation of Hungary. But something is wrong with the old comrade: he looks like a 30-year-old, has a cool demeanor, and drives a fire-red Mustang. A young couple who work for the secret police are assigned to monitor the stranger. Maria (Lili Walters) escorts him, and tries to find out the secret to his eternal youth. Maria's lover, Laci (Ervin Nagy), the master of surveillance and close combat, stalks the two, and when he's not mad from jealousy, does something which is not part of his skill set: he thinks.

One of the funniest Hungarian film ever showing Hungary in the 70's
12 July 2020 | by nicksachi-53803See all my reviews

The vampires are among us! But there is nothing to worry about: the members of the anti-espionage are already on their trail and are using even garlic in addition to the usual tools. From the divine shift writer-director's crazy idea that a vampire is visiting Hungary in the 70's and the secret service is trying to expose , a night - black humorous comedy was born, which invites the audience to an invigorating cinematic experience with an extremely strong cast, a memorable spectacle and a twisting story. He attacks his neck against boredom.

It's a bloody funny Hungarian film
