      simon d This is supposed to be one of the best Hungarian films ever made, according to a Hungarian friend with a penchant for bad films. It's a period comedy set in communist times which I guess you can get a lot more than I did from if you are a) Hungarian, b) Old enough to remember such times, c) have a very basic sense of humour and d) have no taste in music Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
