Hungary sends ‘Chameleon’ to Oscars

Film won audience prize at Hungarian Film Week

BUDAPEST — “Chameleon,” the third feature by helmer Kisztina Goda, has been selected as Hungary’s entry in the foreign-language film category of the Academy Awards.

The Hungarian selection committee has high hopes for “Chameleon,” based on the movie’s strong showing at the Hungarian Film Week in February, and its popularity with local audiences.

The story of a con-man who is able to take on numerous personalities, “Chameleon” won the audience prize at the Film Week, and enjoyed a long run in Hungarian cinemas after its premiere.

Goda, who graduated from UCLA, burst onto the scene in 2005 with the film “Just Sex and Nothing Else.” Her talents came to the attention of Hungarian-born Hollywood producer Andy Vajna, who produced her 2006 feature “Szabadsag, Szerelem” (Children of Glory), which was set around the 1956 Hungarian uprising.
