Live action films appear infrequently in the corpus, as do Hungarian films. This live action short is similar to French Roast in its use of an upside-down protagonist: a scruffy man, perhaps homeless, appears to eat the lunch of a Hungarian businessman at a food stall. The meal is a traditional Hungarian dish of tripe and onions. The dish may provoke an ambivalent response in the palette of the viewer, and calls attention to the foods and drinks that we know to be normal and find fundamental to our identities. The dish becomes the bridge between the two men, a way to pinpoint a moment of change in national identity and a binary between old and new, past and present. Young people aged 12-15 years will be able to tease out these important themes and interpret its relevance to their own lives — and to their own meals.
