Solange is depressed: she’s stopped smiling, she eats little, she says less. She has fainting fits. Her husband Raoul seeks to save her by enlisting Stephane, a stranger, to be her lover. Although he listens to Mozart and has every Pocket Book arranged in alphabetical order, Stephane fails to cheer Solange. She knits. She does housework. Everyone, including their neighbor a vegetable vendor, agrees that she needs a child, yet she fails to get pregnant by either lover. The three take a job running a kids’ summer camp where they meet Christian, the precocious 13-year-old son of the local factory manager. It is Christian who restores Solange to laughter.
Young, dumb and full of love 2006
Tibor vagyok, de hódítani akarok (original title) Comedy | 2 February 2006 (Hungary)
“Young, dumb and full of love!” is a hilarious comedy about sex, love and youth. What happens when a clumsy teenage boy meets the woman of his dreams? A woman who’s a little bit older, a little bit married, and a little bit unfaithful -Hey, nobody’s perfect! But, she does exist; you can see her, you can touch her, sometimes she even seems interested… so you just have to make her yours. Only it’s not that simple. Your great plans become great disasters as you try to overcome a jealous husband, a nerve-wracking lover, a paternalistic janitor, a bashful paddle-boat lender and a girl, who may deserve a lot more attention than the “dream woman” herself.
Silent as a painting, the movie shows us day-dreamer Hermie and his friends Oscy and Benjie spending the summer of ’42 on an US island with their parents – rather unaffected by WWII. While Oscy’s main worries are the when and how of getting laid, Hermie honestly falls in love with the older Dorothy, who’s married to an army pilot. When her husband returns to the front, Hermie shyly approaches her.
A young hopeful teenager is waiting for his unknown and fantasized father to come out of prison. His family dream life is seriously undermined by an exhausted mother and a man who, after so many years in jail, has become unable to be a responsible father.
