    Simon the Magician
    Filmmaker Ildiko Enyedi, best known for My Twentieth Century, directed this blend of drama and fantasy. Peter Andorai stars as Simon, a magus (mystical magician) who makes his way wandering from town to town. After helping police offers uncover a murderer by using a stale old magician's technique, a rival magus offers him a challenge: recreate one of Houdini's most dangerous stunts, in which he would be buried in the ground for three days. Meanwhile, Simon meets an attractive woman with whom he strikes up a relationship, but while she wants sex, his needs are more spiritual. Simon mágus won awards for directing, acting and cinematography at the 1999 Hungarian Film Week Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
