Synopsis:
Liza is a 30-year-old, naïve, lonely nurse living in "Csudapest", the capital of a fictionalized 1970s Hungary with a capitalist system. She has taken care of Marta, the widow of the former Japanese ambassador, for the last 12 years. On her 30th birthday Liza goes to a Mekk Burger restaurant to find romance, upon reading about it in a Japanese romance novel. While she’s away, Marta is killed by Liza’s only friend, Tomy Tani, the ghost of a Japanese pop singer from the 1950s, resulting in Liza inheriting her apartment. Relatives report Liza to the police for murdering Marta. Sergeant Zoltan is put on the case, who gets very nearly killed in the process, and falls slowly in love with Liza after moving into her apartment as a flat mate. She gains confidence, but all her dating efforts end in fatal accidents. Liza is convinced that she has
become a fox-fairy, a demon from Japanese mythology. According to the legend, men who fall in love with a fox-fairy die soon afterwards.

Synopsis:

When a handful of travelling actors perform a play, an angry fist fight erupts. A young soldier sides with them in the scuffle. After he is forced to flee, the troupe takes him in and together, they rattle in a cart from village to village, on their way to Budapest. It seems like a lucky escape, but little does he know what awaits him. A hanging, seduction, a duel, and love, on and maybe off stage. If he knew, perhaps, just possibly, he would join them anyway.

Synopsis : 

Think of Me tells the bizarre tale of a surgeon whose life seems perfect until he learns that he only has a couple of months left to live. Driven by the best intentions, he decides the only way to reduce the suffering of others when he dies is to drive everyone away. He deliberately cheats on his wife, starts to drink heavily, gets fired from his job, and generally flies in the face of all things respectable and legal. He falls out with all those who were once close to him, and the effects of his bad behaviour are really starting to show when…. Somewhere between moral drama and ironic comedy, this touching film stars Hungary’s most popular acting talents

Synopsis : 

Papi is the world’s dodgiest pensioner, who only has a winning smile to offer by way of payment. With nowhere to live, he sets up home in a boathouse on the banks of the Danube. No sooner is he settled than Wizy, his neighbour and owner of a flashy discotheque, sets his sights on Papi’s home that he wants to turn into a stunning nightspot. Far from being phased, but with little idea of what to do, the old fella seeks assistance from his grandson Tomi. The kid is little less dodgy than his grandpa but with bags more charm, and keen to call on his mates to lend a hand. This gang of hapless hopefuls take on the might of Wizy and his thugs and attempt the impossible: they temporarily transform the boathouse into a ruin pub to collect the cash they need to survive. Their hopes are large but their chances are little – but in a romantic comedy such as this, where everyone is a musician and/or in love, then anything at all can happen. And at least that gives us the chance to hear a whole stack of oldies but goodies…
