Rhinoceros Hunting in Budapest

Rhinoceros Hunting in Budapest

A Feature film by Michael Haussman

Produced by Davis Films

Release in France : 21/07/1999

    Synopsis

    The title of this British-French production refers to the dream of the film's hero -- aka The Young Man (Glenn Fitzgerald) -- to hunt an African rhino. After a failed suicide, The Young Man treks across Europe in an effort to track the girlfriend who walked out on him. In Paris, he attempts to deliver a traveling child, but the boy's dad never arrives. Instead, the situation leads him to The Teen (Karine Adrover). In a New Age nod, The Young Man and The Teen make love in a chair with giant angel wings, but before their relationship can ripen, he gets a clue regarding his former girlfriend's whereabouts and takes off for Belgrade and more merry misadventures. Shown at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.
