BAD POEMS

Gábor Reisz | Hungary, France | 2018 | 90 min.
O.V in Hungarian, English, French, German and Polish subtitled in English and Spanish

Nothing like Paris, the city of love, as the setting for a breakup. From there Tamás, at 33, is thrown back into his parents' house in Budapest, depressed, wondering what could have gone wrong. In this unfortunate state he begins a re-examination of his eternal search for the ideal love: at 7, 14 and 17 years old, from the love for polo to assembling a grunge band. A fantasy dramedy with pop ramifications, winner of the Jury and Audience Awards in Turin, box office success in its country, Hungary.
