Kishalak...Nagyhalak... (Little Fish...Big Fish...)| 28mins
Director: Livia Gyarmathy | Producer: Zsuzsa Boszormenyi
Focus Years: 2008 | Country: Hungary
This is a salutary tale of fish poachers and fish protectors. Gangs of organised thieves take fish in industrial quantities from the river along with a single poacher in a checked shirt. A lonely pensioner, JÃ¡nos (with a monthly income of 18 euros), sets off in the direction of the same river to literally fish for his supper. A couple of fishing wardens do their best to stop this illegal activity but only manage to catch JÃ¡nos and penalise him according to the exact letter of the law. This film attempts to portray a Hungarian universe and not suggest that â€œbig fishâ€ eat â€œlittle fishâ€ but that â€œbig fishâ€ flout the law and slip through the net while the â€œlittle fishâ€ get hooked every time.
