Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
Directed, written, and co-produced by Zoltan Kamondi), Kisertesek ("Temptations") illustrates the struggle between ancient traditions and the modern world of restless young Marci (Marcell Miklos), a fatherless young man who is considered somewhat of an outcast within the community. Though his mother Anna (Juli Basti, has managed to make a perfectly respectable life for herself without the aide of a husband, she refuses to give Marci (Miklos) any information about his father's identity. The resulting tension between Marci and his mother only grows when Marci brings his passionate relationship with his lover Elvira (Kati Budai) inside of their household. A heated argument eventually extracts some information from Anna--Marci's father, Tibor (Janos Derzsi), is a local farmer who can barely make ends meet. Careful not to reveal their true relationship, Marci approaches Tibor about farmwork in exchange for room and board. Tibor accepts, and Marci finds himself in another sticky situation when he meets Juli (Julianna Kovacs), a 10-year-old gypsy girl with magical powers. The strange pair teams up and hatches a plan to rob the local bank by using Juli's powers to hack into the automatic teller's computer system, but tensions soon rise again when Juli becomes fiercely jealous of Elvira.
