Andras Jeles too experimented with cinematic language, like his contemporaries Gabor Body and Gyorgy Szomjas. He started out with A Kis Valentino/ The Little Valentino (1979), in which Sandor Kardos' cinematography follows the aimless wandering of a juvenile delinquent in the style of cinema-verite, and then offered a weird adaptation of Imre Madach’s "Az Ember Tragediaja/ The Tragedy of Man" (1861), one of Hungary's greatest poems, Angyali Udvozlet/ Annunciation (1984), played only by children.

Álombrigad/ The Workers’ Dream Brigade (1983) is a wild satire of the communist system and the whole society.
