Hungarian movie wins in Monte Carlo

March 11, 2019

The award for best film at the Montecarlo Film Festival de la Comédie this past week-end was given to the Hungarian movie 'Bad Poems', directed by Gábor Reisz. The film tells the inner journey of the young Tamàs, disillusioned by love after the end of his long relationship with Anna.

The top prize at the end of the 16th edition of the festival was handed over to Gábor Reisz by the President of the Jury, Serbian movie director Emir Kusturica, an award-winning world-renowned filmmaker. Other members of the jury included the icon of Fellini's cinema, Sandra Milo, the French actress Mathilda May and the director, screenwriter and actor Edoardo Leo.

'Bad Poems' is about 33-years old Tamás Merthner who is heartbroken after his girlfriend Anna, who is on a scholarship in Paris, breaks up with him. While wallowing in self-pity, Tamás takes a trip down memory lane to figure out if love only exists when it is practically gone. As he is trying to pick up the pieces, he begins to realize what makes this current society so confused, which gives us a highly subjective view of Hungary's present.
