Nothing pleasant about his film.
28 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

I don't know why the English title is "Pleasant Days". Is it tongue in cheek?

The film seems incomplete. It has the feeling of being put together in a desperate hurry. There are some interesting scenes well photographed but they don't go any where and you are left wondering why indeed they were included. The story line is pretty weak. It's really a disjointed study of Peter an ex-jail bird and his unstable relationship with others. He smokes like a chimney which is understandable because his future is so insecure. His only real pleasure in life is sex.

But the actor who plays the lead role does have a certain charisma which rises above his miserable existence. There are a few light-hearted scenes but one in particular I remember is his "bath time" scene when he jumps into a washing machine for a thorough cleansing. I have to admit I was on tenter-hooks believing that someone might inadvertently switch on the machine!. There are frequent sexual episodes and constant reference to genital parts which are written into the script either to shock or to suggest that the characters have sex constantly on their minds.

I watched the film to the end but remained in a state of complete hopelessness for the characters and as for Krisztian the baby around whom much of the action revolved I could see no future in life for this little Hungarian.
