Not the best, but definitely intriguing and entertaining
11 June 2010 | by PlaybahnoshSee all my reviews

On first sight, Poligamy looks and smells like your run of the mill romantic summer movie. But there is a huge twist, that makes it one of the most entertaining and intriguing films of the modern Hungarian movie scene.

The story kicks off as anyone would expect. András, the mildly successful screenwriter moves in with his girlfriend Lilla after a five year relationship. They seem to live a fairly normal life until one morning András wakes up beside a totally different girl...who also calls herself Lilla and acts like nothing happened. Utter confusion and occasional hilarity ensues. The story revolves around András, who tries to solve the unreal puzzle, all the while thinking that either him or the world has gone insane.

Poligamy is anything but average. The story is clever, mysterious and you'll never know what's reality and what's not. The emotions seem much more real than average American romantic movies and the actors are very talented. If you want to watch an intriguing and clever romantic movie with the occasional humor sprinkled on top, Poligamy is one move for you. It's not the best, but it's still pretty awesome!
