  • saitosouta's rating of the film Falfúró

    Compared to a divine western flick "Talpuk alatt fütyül a szél" by same director, more modernish and boldly experimental is "Falfúró", which doesn't mean it's better than aformentioned one. It has an ambition to capture thoughts and frustration in transitional 80's Hungary with kaleidscopic style like an occidental abstract tablou. But its result is unfortunately half-baked snoozefest. An oppotunity sadly missed.
