In an extremely remote town in the desolate plains of Hungary, a young man (Lars Rudoph) fantasizes about a weird phenomenon that is about to descend onto his town. He spreads the strange enthusiasm around his workplace and home, only to be rejected by everyone for his thoughts. Then, a trailer with torso of a whale shows up, and flocks of men surround the trailer, expecting some sort of show to accompany the bizarre exhibit. They, along with the town, got more than they bargained for. This film certainly portrays the Hungarians as poor, lonely, hostile, and pitiful people and sadly they are right. Seeing as a I am half Hungarian and have been to the nation, it seems fairly potent to me as the nation's citizens severly lack significant social etiquette (not to say that I don't either but this nation seems significantly anti-social compared to the other I have been to). Disturbing, haunting, and interesting chronicle, very nicely filmed in black and white to add grand effect!
