Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

Janos and Gabor are brothers who have a life-long competitive relationship. This even extends to their lifestyles and their women. In fact, they both loved the same woman, but only one could have her. The winner stayed in Budapest, and the loser moved to Paris, finding comfort in the arms of a rich woman. Instead of writing letters, visiting, or talking on the phone, the two boneheads compete with one another in the "who has a better life" sweepstakes by making videos of their lives and sending them to one another. Occasionally, a brother will take a scene in the other's video and show how it could have been falsified. Are any of their claims true? Are they actually brothers living in different places? Are the videos even about the brothers, or are they a game conjured up by their women? It's up to the viewer to tell.
