      Audience Member This film just did not connect for this viewer. Maybe it was the translation. Maybe it was the cultural differences. Maybe it was the choppy editing that left few transitional scenes, but seemed to jump from one crisis to the next without context. Maybe it was the lack of clear motivation for the actions of the various characters. Somehow the ingredients were there for a much better film than this turned out to be, but it just never jelled. Two young women, Emma (Johanna ter Steege) and Böbe (Enikö Börcsök), childhood friends, leave their country village and attempt to make a life for themselves in Budapest. They are poor and struggling, but determined to make a success of their lives. The basic story kernel was solid, the two girls are lovely, but the way the story unfolded left a lot to be desired. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Purely for those who are absolutely curious about the Hungarian film scene. This is interesting but not terribly compelling. It seems that there is still some way for them to go in reaching the heights of other countries in the Eastern Block like Romania.

      Vanessa Letts The Spectator Should leave you feeling depressed, but it's worth going to see. Jul 24, 2018 Full Review Amber Wilkinson Eye for Film Szab's film - co-written with Andrea Vszits - is concerned with the way in which, after a major switch in a political system, there is a period in which it takes people time to find their voices. Rated: 4/5 Dec 9, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews
