| It makes you laugh, but also makes you think
1992. Milan Kolarov (András Ötvös) escapes from Yugoslavia to Hungary. Shortly after that, he gets recruited by paramedics, who are making big money of selling identities of the people died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. Because Milan wants to get his fiancée out of Sarajevo, he needs money and he's eager to take part.

Márk Bodzsár's grotesque black humor is quite unique, but the movie is also serious and tragical at the same time. It made me laugh, but the meaning of most scenes still haunts me. The direction and the cinematography is amazing, something which you don't see in many Hungarian films. The actor are perfect at delivering the jokes, and they make most of scenes memorable.

It's an unusual movie experience, but it's worth it. Only Martin McDonagh's works had the same effect on me before, so if you're looking for something like In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, I would recommend this one!
