This film that won a Silver Bear at the 1992 Berlinale depicts a sombre snapshot sketching out, for the first time, change-of-regime Hungary as characterized by the fate of teachers of Russian coming up from the countryside. The year is 1989. Emma and Böbe are living in a workers’ hostel in Budapest, attending a crash course in English that they then have immediately to teach. Russian school books are burnt, teachers are mocked. The two girlfriends fall on hard times; Emma starts cleaning while Böbe ends up in prison for illegal money changing and prostitution. Only one could endure.
