S.O.S. Love alone in 2007 Hungarian Top 10

2008-02-12

There were 28 domestic theatrical releases in Hungarian cinemas in 2007, the best year since 2004, but only one - S.O.S. Love! - made the Hungarian Top 10 box office for the year. Admissions for domestic films totaled nearly 1.3 million people and gross revenue stood at 889 million forints (€3.4 million), the lowest figures in four years.

That compares with 2006, by far the best of the last six years with admissions of 2.1 million and total gross of nearly 1.5 billion forints. The 28 releases in 2007 equaled 2004 when there were 28 releases as well, including co-productions. Hungary released 24 films in 2006 and 17 in 2005.

Two films broke the 200,000 admission mark in 2007, S.O.S. Love! And The Train Keeps a Rollin', a comedy by Róbert Koltai. Six films attracted more than 100,000 moviegoers.

The domestic top five included one animation, which took third place. The Catcher (or Cat City 2) is the sequel to the 1986 smash hit Cat City, which unofficially has attracted 4.5 million people.

S.O.S. Love! by Tamás Sas, a romantic comedy, also is the only domestic film to make it in the Hungarian Top 10 for 2007, taking sixth place in terms of total gross. The only other non-US entry was a sequel to the French box office hit Taxi.
