Sticky Matters
(Macerás ügyek)

feature, 35mm, 100 minutes

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2000.

The story is simple; it's the characters who are more important.
A woman corrupted by love and a boy in love with her. He is completely disturbed by the emotion and is prepared to change his whole personality, if it means consummation. The boy has a good friend, who has to decide whether he is gay or just loves his friend too much. Until the woman appeared, the boy's friendship was conspicuously close - that is the problem. Can they keep up the friendship in this threesome? Can love be born? Can the friendship withstand it? And what do others say?
