The Real Santa
(Az igazi mikulás)

feature, 35mm, 96 minutes

co-produced with: United States Serbia

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2005.

Once upon a time there was a bar pianist, Misu. His life had been derailed.
Once upon a time there was an 8-year-old girl, Liza. She was an orphan.
On 6th December, Misu is hired as Santa at a department store.
On the same wintery day Liza escapes from the orphanage, because once, long ago, her mother promised her that when she would be 8 years old, she would get a bicycle from Santa.
On that day, when thick snowfall covers the city, Liza steps up to Misu and asks for the bicycle.
This fairy tale is the story of these two people. Santa, who has no intention of buying a bicycle for a complete stranger, and Liza, who nevertheless won�t give in.
What will these two accomplish? Is there a force that can persuade this cynical, selfish bar pianist to carry out a charitable act well over his financial limits?
The adventures of Liza and Misu in the city will provide the answer to the question at the end of the day.
