Now Showing In Budapest: 'Kincsem', In Hungarian With English Subtitles
XpatLoop recommends this movie for a good few reasons, not least because Kincsem, Hungarian for 'My Precious' or 'My Treasure', was the most successful thoroughbred race horse ever, having won 54 races for 54 starts (17 March 1874 – 17 March 1887). It's also of interest as the most expensive film ever made in Hungary, and because this USD 10 million production - mostly funded by 'Hungarian Film Fund' - marks the return of celebrated director Gábor Herendi after a seven-year absence.


This Hungarian film director, famous for 'Valami Amerika' (2002), 'Valami Amerika 2' (2008) and 'Magyar Vándor' (2004), is quoted as saying,

“A high budget doesn’t mean we’re playing in a paddling pool. We’re working on a very, very tight budget." He continued, “Of course, it’s a lot of money compared to other Hungarian films, but expectations are also very high. We are competing with America. This film should look like a Hollywood production and we’re doing our best.”

Film Plot

Ernő Blaskovich has lost everything in the aftermath of the Hungarian revolution of 1848-49. He lives a meaningless, dissipated life right until a chance of redemption appears in the form of Kincsem – the miraculous horse, who wins every single race across Europe.

Fate offers a shot at revenge for Blaskovich: he can beat his nemesis and murderer of his father, fellow horse owner Baron von Oettingen in a noble way. Their rivalry takes an unexpected turn when Blaskovich falls for von Oettingen’s daughter, Klara.

At the end of the day, he has to decide whether to give in to love or to revenge.
