The reliability of an inscrutable Hungarian National Security officer is put to the test in post-1956 Budapest in "The Exam," a nifty little pretention-free genre item from helmer Peter Bergendy. Penned by Norbert Kobli, the pic's communist-cat-and-counterrevolutionary-mouse game is never excessively political, instead playing up the noir and mystery elements that ensure the film's main loyalty lies with entertaining its mainstream audience. Impressively shot on a small budget for Magyar TV, this was deservedly released in theaters first, and could go a similar route in other ex-Soviet territories.
