A serious struggle for the land, love and life! Debutant director Mark Kostyal transfers the Wild West to the East Europe with extraordinary imagery.
SynopsisSultry heat, dinginess, unspoken social problems and hierarchical infighting. This is the town of Tuzko, somewhere in present-day Hungary where Misi arrives to inherit his grandfather’s house and property. Misi is a disillusioned and frustrated young man who is constantly on the run and who does not find his place in the world, in work or in relationships. Soon he begins the hardest struggle of his life for land, love and for his life. A rough neo-western about land expropriation and human stress. An excellent action drama by Mark Kostyal, a new voice in the Hungarian cinematic landscape.
