By Robert Velkey // 2017.03.20.

The new Hungarian film Kincsem (whose literal translation would be”my treasure”; the English title is Invincible), tells the tale of a prize-winning Hungarian horse, who became, arguably, the most successful thoroughbred racehorse ever. The great international co-production between English, Russian, German, American and Austrian filmmakers is the most expensive Hungarian movie that has ever been made. It cost 3 billion forints, almost $10,000,000 USD, but according to there has not been a Hungarian film as popular with moviegoers in 11 years.


Exactly 72,089 tickets have been already sold and ticket revenue has already reached 100 million forint. The movie is currently being shown throughout Hungary in 80 cinemas.
