The Phantom Ace
(A Fantom ász)
(1995, feature, video, colour, 73 min.)
Director of photography:
At the award ceremony the president and the interior minister talk with excitement about a boy from the village who is like a magic weapon. He is able to disappear at any time and his mere presence can start huge fires – but he has disappeared. He must be found immediately. The „chase” starts: the local police, three KGB agents on a motor-cycle, an axe murderer, Satan’s dog – they are all after the boy. In the meantime everybody „gives interviews” to a somnolent policeman: Satan, a medium, the fire brigade chief, the grandmother, the famous writer, etc. The boy reappears in a tale set at dawn and leaves a burning bush behind.
