Valahol Európában / It Happened in Europe (1948) finally coming. Appears to be two discs this time, probably the reason for the price being 4741 Forints.

The last time I was there, in 2009, I found some great DVDs with English subtitles. A lot has happened since then and I can't even remember which side of the river I was on.
I'm too late for your trip....but in general try the Alexandria bookstores, particularly the one in Pest diagonally across from the Westend Mall (close to the Nyugati train station).

Attila Dargay collection including Lúdas Matyi (1977), Vuk (1981), Szaffi (1985) and Az erdő kapitánya (1988). The fourth is a new addition to the set while the other three have been available for awhile.

Arbelos have restored Marcell Jankovics' Son of the White Mare (Fehérlófia). The restoration will premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival next week, with a US Blu-Ray release to follow next year.

Anybody have a recent recommendation on Hungarian etailers, in terms of reliability and shipping cost to the US? Bookline? Xpress? Haven't imported anything from Hungary in a while.

I used lira.hu for my last few orders, but I haven't ordered anything from Hungary in a good couple of years.
