Storyline

On the surface it is an idyll. He lives a happily married life with Judit, a teacher and their eight-year old son, Dani. His best friend, Zoli is also his business partner and between the two of them they own four flourishing bakeries in Budapest. An enviable setting. But in the background a time bomb is ticking away. For years Andris has been living a passionate and blessed second life. The scene is Poland. Pretending to be making business trips, he has been spending half the year in Cracow, with Bea. She is a beautiful young woman and a church-painter. In this life Andris paints Creation in the chapel near the city. He is sensitive and gifted in what he does. In Pest he is a talented businessman, in Cracow an excellent artist. It is as if there were two people in him. What's more: he is satisfied with both lives. And since he is also an excellent conspirator, until this early morning he has never had to make a choice. But now Bea is pregnant, and would like to marry him. On this ... Written by Anonymous

a wonderful film with a great plot
21 May 2006 | by a-bunyikSee all my reviews

The Last Blues is a fascinating story very similar to Woody Allen's Match Point. Set in Budapest and Poland, the story takes place in a 24 hour period and follows a married man (Andris) as he discovers that his mistress (Bea) is pregnant and has decided to marry her. The story takes a great turn as Andris is driving to his wedding in Poland. The film makes you uncomfortable in a good way that keeps you on the edge of your seat to the very end. The acting is great and as with many Hungarian films, the visuals are stunning. The music is also very good at lending a hand to the bizarre twists and turns of the plot. A must see film for anyone interested in love and It's tribulations.
