A bright, snappy relationship comedy repping a still-new strain of commercial Hungarian cinema concocted primarily for local consumption, “Just Sex and Nothing Else” was a huge local hit that will travel to a clutch of fests and play well regionally before finding a pot of gold on homevid.

Thirty-three-year-old theater dramaturg Dora (Judit Schell) meets cute with swaggering actor Tamas (ubiquitous “Kontroll” star Sandor Csanyi) when she’s forced to a window ledge by the sudden arrival of her current lover’s wife. As exasperated Dora tells actress chum Zsofi (Kata Dobo), she wants a kid but as for the guy, it’s just sex and nothing else. As she sorts things out with Tamas by way of composer Peter (Zoltan Seress) and Turkish counterman Ali (Antal Czapko), laughs are plentiful as the troupe grapples with her translation of “Dangerous Liaisons.” Unsurprisingly, relationship issues are generally treated with more frankness than in similar U.S. or Brit prods. Witty dialogue is delivered briskly by easy-on-the-eyes cast, with Karoly Gesztesi a hoot as play’s blustery helmer. Glossy tech package presents a sophisticated, picturesque Budapest. Pic won the screenplay prize at the recently concluded Hungarian Film Week.
