István, a király ("Stephen, the King") is a Hungarian rock opera written by Levente Szörényi (music) and János Bródy (lyrics), based on the life of Saint Stephen of Hungary. The storyline was based on the play Ezredforduló (Turn of the Millennium) by Miklós Boldizsár, who co-wrote the libretto. The opera was first staged in 1983 on an open-air stage in Budapest. This first performance was also made into a 1984 film, directed by Gábor Koltay, and its music released on an album. The musical became a smash hit and is still very popular in Hungary and among Hungarian minorities in neighboring countries. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Kairav P (gb) wrote: one of the most boring and over the top romance and unedited movie ever made.The climax is even more ridiculous

Nicki M (fr) wrote: Pretty stupid, but okay for something light. Few laughs among the bad taste.

Benjamin C (br) wrote: This was a good movie and with a good plot , but in parts, it scared me to death. I tried to sleep right after watching it, but I had 5 different night mares because of it.

Jason J (ca) wrote: I'm not sure why director Shane Meadows dislikes this dark comedy drama he made as I quite liked it. Robert Carlyle, Rhys Ifans, Shirley Henderson, Kathy Burke - they can't possibly make a bad film but it is the acting that makes it, not the script, which is meant to be based on a traditional western. The story is very simple: man proposes, woman declines. Ex-lover returns, woman falls for him. Original man stands up for himself, woman realises mistake and gets back with original man. End Credits. Granted, nothing really drastic happens during the course of the movie but I feel the way the story is told was beneficial to the audience, with its "real life" feel. The comedy is edgy and you can get cozy and settle into the plot easily while waiting for the next twist. Overall it's an enjoyable but lackluster movie.

Armando P (it) wrote: Ridley Scott's attempt to Spartacus is pretty good

Matty S (it) wrote: Dismissed at the time of its release, Irvin Kershner's adaptation of Anne Richardson Roiphe's novel is a fascinating bit of post-Femnist surrealism. This is also one of the few films in which Barbra Streisand plays someone other than an idea of herself. She is completely believable as intellectual middle class housewife. The mixture of fantasy and real becomes so artistically convoluted that one is left wondering where the story might be headed. There is magic in this tiny puzzle of a film.

Julien E (nl) wrote: Un excellent musical avec la belle Ann Miller qui ressemble tellement Scarlett Johansson dans ce film!

Carlos M (gb) wrote: An engaging ghost story that deserves more credit for its twisty plot, uncomfortable atmosphere and Medak's refined direction than for being actually scary (even though it does have its creepy moments), and it boasts a very fine performance by George C. Scott.

Greg N (it) wrote: This movie starts out with Christopher Walen and Ed "I"m Al Bundy" O'Neil shooting the crap out of a 3rd world hell hole as mercenaries. Jack Cardiff does the cinematography too. I'm sure based off those statements alone you want to watch this movie. Thankfully it's also pretty fun so please have at it.
