Pál Zolnay didn’t use a traditional screenplay, during the shooting of the movie. Most of the scenes were improvised on-site. Two actors wandered from house to house in the countryside in the roles of the photographer (Márk Zala) and the retoucher business man (István Iglódi) offering their photographic services to the people. The movie, which has been called „the Hungarian Blow Up” many times, won the special prize of the jury of the Moscow International Film Festival.
