Screenplay, Szoke, Gyorgy Palos. Camera (color), Palos; editor, Andrea Szakacs; production design, Szoke, Laszlo Hudi. Reviewed at Hungarian Film Week, Budapest, Feb. 8, 1994. Running time: 81 MIN.

Andras Szoke makes offbeat comedies (“Cotton Chicken,””Lemon Pig”) that produce guffaws with Hungarian audiences but don’t travel. “The Little Mole” is his most wayward effort, a bizarre tale in which the director plays the underground creature who crawls out of his hole to explore the real world.

It’s a concept that lends new meaning to the word “unsophisticated,” but Szoke’s jokes remain all his own, and his fans will probably welcome his latest low-budgeter.

Apart from the myopic mole, the other principal characters are a bickering human couple (the wife played by an actor in drag) who may somehow be the mole’s parents. Much use is made of the mole’s family photo album, whose contents come alive to talk to the audience.

Tech credits are extremely modest. Outside Hungary, audiences for this strange farce are likely to be few and far between.
