Hungarian Critics Join ‘Nymphomaniac’s O-Face Club

Hungarian Critics Join 'Nymphomaniac's O-Face Club

First Danish film critics stripped and squinted for Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac. Then Polish critics followed (birthday) suit. Now Hungarians are the latest to get into the act, with twelve of the country’s critical practitioners putting on their best O-faces to proclaim “Movies Turn Us On!” (Or, as Google Translate has it, the rather less climactic “We Also Enjoy the Movies.”)

At this point, the orgiastic excess is almost enough for a set of playing cards. Or perhaps those aren’t the cards we should be thinking of. Trade you a Kovacs Gellert in mint condition for two Anna Tatarskas and a stick of gum.

Not only that enjoy means "something like that" in Hungarian but we use the same word for enjoying our food and to have an orgasm. And the language difference is why we chose to use another English slogan :)


("Enjoy" also means something like reaching orgasm in Hungarian.)
