See You in Space!

Continuing a penchant for labyrinthine plotting and surrealistic story touches, Hungarian helmer Jozsef Pacskovszky's third feature, "See You in Space!" finds the filmmaker taking the multi-character, multi-location approach about as far as it can go. Fans of his livelier 2003 criss-crosser "The Colour of Happiness" may bite, but more subdued new work seems more likely to land at fests and regional arthouses than further theatrical galaxies.

Stranded in orbit by budget cutbacks, a Russian cosmonaut is helpless as his wife takes up with an Italian magician. A pensioner falls for the hairdresser who accidentally cuts off his ear. A criminal psychologist may be attracted to her patient, a convicted wife-killer. A married microbiologist begins an affair with an African woman. Though Pacskovszky keeps a firm hand on these multiple threads, the fairytale element so prominent in his work here has a more calculated and forced feel to it, with little coalescing beyond a mood of thoughtful human chaos. Handsome tech package contributes to otherworldly feel. In Hungarian Film Week prize march, Ildiko Toth won the supporting actress award for her poignant psychologist, and the scripting trio was lauded for their work.
