Peter Haumann won Best Actor Award at the Saint Jean de Luz International Film Festival, which ended this weekend. The jury of the French Basque showcase awarded the Hungarian actor for his performance in Adventurers, directed by Béla Paczolay.
Geza is a trumpeter in his fifties, who settled in Hungary decades earlier. On his fourth marriage now, he lost whatever he had in the divorces. His son, András supports himself by odd jobs, often for the underworld, and usually losing on them too. They are coming to a small village to take Grandpa - played by Haumann - to Budapest, to save him from the misery his life has become due to Grandma’s senility. The journey begins, but will they ever get anywhere?
Paczolay Bela's first feature won Best Debut Award at the 39th Hungarian Film Week in Budapest.
