Movie Reviews

Surprisingly charming!
J. Michel | Saint Paul, MN | 12/19/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Despite the bad reviews given this film by some others here, I bought a copy anyway, expecting a boring, drab, poorly made "slice-of-gritty-urban life-in-contemporary-Budapest" film ... and was pleasantly surprised that the film did NOT meet my expectations!

"I Love Budapest" is actually a rather sweet film, very well made, with memorable -- even subtle -- acting (yes, the characters are all incredibly dumb, but charming nonetheless). What surprised me most was its fantastic/ambiguous ending that one can interpret as one likes.

I've been watching a number of Hungarian films lately, and actually this is one of my favorites. I was certainly NOT given good advice by the sour, negative reviews posted here, and just wanted to alert others to give this film a chance: yes, it's a conventional enough story (naive country girl goes to the big city, falls in with the "wrong sort"), but the acting and ending are enough to make me want to keep it for repeat viewings -- and to practice my Hungarian!

Coming of age in Budapest

"Apparently coming of age in Budapest isn't much different than in the US. The film is well captured with a strong performance by its leading lady and as well as the rest of the cast. Reminded me of the Dreamlife of Angels in many ways. Contrasting the hard grind of manual labor with the nightlife of an urban city. One moment the lead girl is filthy dressed in work clothes - the next she is in a mini skirt and skimpy top partying on the town. Profound in the way we see her trying to make the best of her plight."
Coming of age story from Hungary

"Great foreign film from Hungary. I've never seen a Hungarian film before and if this is what they are like I would love to see more. Story kinda surprised me how "American" it was. Small town country girl moves to Budapest with her best friend. By day she works in a factory, by night gets sucked into the nightlife of the city. Gabriella Hamori is beautiful and very talented as the lead girl. I Can't remember the guy who played her boyfriend but he rocks too. Good to see real characters faulted but lovable."

"If you are looking for a Hungarian speaking DVD than this is a good buy. The film itself is not so exciting. I do like that they speak Magyarul. The music is very interesting but the same song is played too much. If you miss Hungary and want to see and hear about Hungarians than you will like this film. If you are looking for a super exciting film than this is not it. I like the Hungarian language spoken and for that reason alone I am glad I bought the film."
