The main protagonist of this unconventional crime story is 37 year old Tibor, a lonely pathologist with serious communication problems. Just a couple of floors above his office, his mother is dying of cancer. Tibor learns about a treatment his mother could undergo in Sweden, however, the costs are far beyond his means. At about the same time, he is approached by a one-eyed stranger, who introduces himself as Cyclops, and asks him to commit a murder for the amount of money equal to the costs of the Swedish treatment. Tibor does not know the victim, but agrees to the murder. After the deed, he receives a letter revealing information he was not aware of when he got involved.Atilla Gigor, the director and screenwriter, did not target his debut feature for strong stomachs only.
In his hero lies an element of poignant vulnerability, as suggested by the highly stylized sequences depicting his inner world. Hungarian Film Week honoured Gigor’s "The Investigator" with four prizes, among them Best Screenplay and Best Actor (Zsolt Anger).
Attila Gigor (born in Budapest in 1978) studied acting. Sometimes he uses the name Attila Galambos. In 2000, he enrolled at the Hungarian Academy of Film and Drama to study directing.
