A kind of fictionalized true story, if that is possible, this "cine-novel" takes real people (as opposed to actors, assumed not to be real people) and puts them in roles that either fit their type anyway, or have something to do with their own experiences. In this case, writer and director Bela Tarr has Andras Szabo going through his paces as a drifter who makes it in his own way, via a wide array of jobs, all the while indulging in his enjoyment of music and other interests. The film looks into alcoholic wards and various societal niches as it meanders along to its ending. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
