Hungarian fest at the Shang
The third Hungarian Film Festival opens today at the Shangri-La Plaza’s Red Carpet Cinema with the showing of the inaugural movie, “Bet on Revenge,” a historical adventure film loosely based on the exploits of Kincsem, a world-famous racing horse of unparalleled speed.
Set against the backdrop of 19th century political turmoil in Hungary, the film is a tale of love, revenge and sportsmanship.
Other films lined up for the festival are “Brazilok” (Brazils), “Genezis” (Genesis), “Moszkva tér” (Moscow Square) and “Tales from the Lakeside.”
All screenings are free of charge and subtitled in English.
