The first feature of Roland Vranik, assistant director on Bela Tarr's elusive masterpiece Werckmeister Harmonies, is a black-and-white absurdist comedy that plays like a bad drug-induced dream. The four principal characters work as chimney sweeps in Budapest, mostly because the job gives them lots of time to get high and plot get-rich-quick schemes, and they lurch from one disaster to the next like somnambulists. A strong first film, immensely popular in Hungary, with a tight minimalist script by Vranik and Gergely Poharnok. In Hungarian with subtitles. 80 min.
