The three brothers, Akos, Tamas and Andras - known from the first part - try to get back their 60 million forints stolen by impostor Alex who ran away with the money and the girlfriend of the oldest brother.
If it's true that good Hungarian movies are a rarity these days (and it is), then good Hungarian comedies are about as common as snowmen in hell. BOLDOG SZÜLETÉSNAPOT! (Happy Birthday!) is a terrific little movie... a fresh script, great casting, excellent performances, production values, etc. A top-flight debut for director Csaba Fazekas. Worthy of special mention are Tamás Sas' cinematography and Eszter Ónodi's show-stealing work as Vera/Gyöngyi. See this one if you get the chance. (Seen at Magyar Filmszemle/National Film Festival, Budapest)
