'Sing' is a childhood drama with a lot of music, set in 1990s Budapest, Hungary. Inspired by a true story, it follows an award winning school choir and the new girl in class who just might uncover the ugly secret behind their fame.
Ernõ Blaskovich lost everything after the Hungarian Revolution of 1848. Kincsem, a magnificent horse gives a purpose of his meaningless, self-destructing life. He gets a chance to gain everything back: revenge, love and fame.
Based on real-life events, this psycho-thriller is set in the provincial Hungary of the 1960s, when a series of atrocious murders shock the small town of Martfü. A psychotic killer is on the prowl, who continues to slaughter young women while an innocent man is wrongly accused and sentenced for crimes he could never have committed. A determined detective arrives on the scene and soon becomes obsessed with the case while under pressure from the prosecutor to see a man hang. Stuck in the suffocating social, political and psychological world of socialist Hungary, we soon find ourselves entangled in a web of intricate conspiracy and disturbing drama.
Strangled or A Martfüi Rém (The Monster from Martfü) is based on true events and tells the story of a Hungarian serial murderer/necrophiliac in the 1960's. It's an interesting story to follow, but it's also not the most captivating movie about a psychopath like him, nevertheless it's a well made movie. The murder/rape shots are a bit graphic and that makes the movie look real, without being too disgusting to watch though. The acting wasn't bad. I didn't know any of the actors but they all did a good job. You can't help thinking that research and justice were not the greatest things in that era in that country. I don't think I watched a lot of Hungarian movies before but this one is worth a watch.
