Twin circus clowns survive the ups and downs of Hungary in the 20th century, with most attention paid to the 1956 uprising against the Soviets. Robert Koltai, who wrote and directed this tragicomic 2004 feature, also stars as the more childlike of the pair, who takes advantage of the uprising to free his wiser brother from prison. The lightly absurdist mood is entertaining (two lost Russian soldiers drive around Hungary in a tank looking for Suez), but the story feels rushed, as if this were highly condensed from a hefty novel. In Hungarian with subtitles. 95 min.
