Very British - Satires and grotesques
The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer (1970)
It might be an exaggeration to say our hero is a modern reincarnation of the less sympathetic Shakespearean protagonists, though perhaps only because Richard III and Macbeth would have a lot to learn from him. The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer makes you think: at a time when digitalisation and the online world hasn't even be dreamed of, it depict the mountain-moving power of manipulation. And the fact that simple citizens have no real way of influencing the situation. Michael Rimmer is played by one of the greatest ever English comics, Peter Cook, though here there is nothing funny about him at all. By the end, we fear him. As for what exactly he is - just a clever chap or a villain - that depends on the moral judgement of the esteemed viewer.
In English, with Hungarian subtitles.
The discussions before and after the screenings are conducted in Hungarian.
