After some comments on my Skype profile photo, i did another search today on the film the photo is from, the Hungarian film Hagyjállógva Vászka (Vaska Easoff), directed by Péter Gothár.
I saw this brilliant film on the International Film Festival Rotterdam in 1997 (!), and have never been able to find it anywhere since. By now it has grown to almost mythical proportions.
My internet search today resulted in:
- Exactly one Google image (my good old Skype profile photo);
- A short description on the IFFR site, which linked to;
- German sales company Media Luna Entertainment, who do not have the film in their online catalogue.
I sent them an e-mail, which i doubt i'll ever hear back from.
But i think i'll keep the photo until i find the film.
