Storyline

33-years old Tamás Merthner is heartbroken, after his girlfriend Anna, who is on a scholarship in Paris, breaks up with him. While wallowing in self-pity, Tamás takes a trip down memory lane to figure out if love only exists when it's practically gone. As he's trying to pick up the pieces, he begins to realize what makes this current society so confused, which gives us a highly subjective view of Hungary's present.

If you think that European art house movies are dire, depressing and hard to watch, you will find this film a pleasurable exception to the rule. While deliberately ignoring some knacks of film making that audiences of standard goods require this film will keep you entertained with other goodies if you have an open mind. Hungarian comedy.
