A Pogány Madonna is the first – and the best – part of a series called Bujtor-movies. (Csak semmi pánik
1982; Az elvarázsolt dollár,1985; Hamis a baba,1991) These films tried to copy the Bud Spencer movies which were very popular in the 80's in our country. (They are popular present days, too. The commercial TV-channels continuously broadcast different films of the Spencer-Hill twin.) These films didn't managed very well as copies but I think they works". They reflect the feeling of the Hungarian 80's. When I watch one of them I always think of my childhood. (A Pogány Madonna is a special favourite of me, because it produced in my birth-year, 1980.) I remember almost all parts of the sequences: the old-fashioned cars, the retro" clothes and furniture make you feel a kind of nostalgia. The skits and dialogues seem sometimes childish but they fit into the hilarious atmosphere of the film. The characters and the jokes are too weak and forced, but the actors participated in the film were – and are nowadays as well – the most employed Hungarian actors. In my opinion these actors and actresses knew they work. (Think of Judit Hernádi as the fast wife Mrs Vályi, Miklós Benedek as the I'm very happy" P. Smith, László Bánhidi as the secret link" Uncle Matuska and at last but no least in the main roles: István Bujtor as Csöpi Ötvös and András Kern as Dr. Kardos. Not only the things mentioned above but the music of Pogány Madonna imitate the feeling of the Italian Piedone-movies as well. Apart from its weaknesses this film is worth watching, it offers good entertainment for everybody and makes you relive those beautiful moments, jokes, happenings of the 80's. I gave 8 from 10. Watch it, and tell your critics!
