Gabor and Tibi are hustlers on the make. Gabor's a narcissistic hunk with a knack for fleecing lovelorn ladies. He works as a janitor so he can sift through office trash, sniffing out sad women to be his next targets. Gabor seems to have hit the jackpot when he lands a job at a psychiatrist's office. While snooping through the doctor's files, he discovers a beautiful ballerina named Hanna, daughter of a millionaire, with a knee injury so serious she may never dance again. Gabor and Tibi set out to establish Gabor as a selfless pediatrician so he can get Hanna an appointment with a famous orthopedic surgeon, hoping she'll be so grateful she'll give him her cash. Just as the orthopedic surgeon starts making unwanted advances toward him, Gabor finds himself in love with Hanna. Meanwhile, an actor who Gabor has scammed into thinking he's a Hollywood producer shows up with threatening goons. Now that Gabor's web of lies is closing in on him, he can't seem to remember which part of himself is real and which is an illusion. CHAMELEON is a stylish thriller. (In Hungarian with subtitles) – B.B.
