Hyppolit, a lakáj (1931)

It’s interesting to find out that the swedish »pilsnerfilm« genre had its equivalent in Hungary! This is a cosy comedy of manners, toying with the trespassing of class and status borders and mocking all kinds of pretense.

A competent tongue-in-cheek construction with humorous misunderstandings, telling songs, symbolic dialogues, and role-switching – but quite predictable and only mildly funny, alas. Not in my book.
