    • Synopsis
    • Fine, Thanks is a feature-length film consisting of three main stories and an epilogue. The stories take place
      during the current financial crisis that affects the intimate lives of the characters and reveals a harsh picture
      of their twisted relations. The applied narrative method, which is based on observation and borders on documentary
      filmmaking, is also the key approach in portraying a world that is losing morals but has not yet lost
      all hope.
      The first story is focused on Miroslav, a man of means with his own way of dealing with problems in his
      company, the troubles of his brother, and the sadness of his wife, who is an alcoholic. The second story
      is about Béla. Béla is a pensioner whose wife died and his children put him in a retirement home because
      he was no longer needed. The third story is about Béla’s son, Attila. He lost his job and his marriage is
      falling apart. His efforts at keeping his family together lead to the worst Christmas he, his wife Zuza, and his
      chidren have ever had. The film concludes with the wedding of Dana, Miroslav’s daughter, and Pista, Attila’s
      relative, and this occasion brings most of the film’s characters together. They are all enjoying themselves at
      the Slovak - Hungarian wedding: they eat and drink and dance till morning as they try to forget all that was
      and hope for better days. The film is based on real-life situations that the filmmakers saw around them. The
      movie applies methods of documentary filmmaking as it reflects the times and the world we live in.
