I have already watched three Hungarian movies at the Hungarian movie weeek, here, in Bucharest, at the Peasant National Museum. I am Romanian, but I like Hungarian culture. The plot of Deva unfolds here in Romania, in Transylvania. The director and assistant director are Hungarians born here, like it is the main character, Kato and the teenage actress who played it. So, comparing Deva with the other two Hungarian movies I watched, Deva is rather Transylvanian than Hungarian, in a good sense, it's original. I liked the movie, I like how i t was filmed. All the actors played well and very well. Csengelle Nagy was awesome as Kato, the ecceentric albino teeenage girl from the orphanage. Congrats for the whole team of the movie!
