Budapest - Bored by the weeks-long
coronavirus lockdown? Not Hungarian film buffs Fanni and Norbert
who have recreated dozens of scenes in their flat from "Ghost",
the "Game of Thrones", "Scarface" and other films using whatever
household utensils they could find.
The couple's photos quickly went viral on social media, and
now they just can't stop, coming up every day with new ideas.
"Inspiration struck when we were in the kitchen cooking,"
said Norbert Hosszu, 30, as he prepared to put on a wig to act
out a scene in which Tyrion Lannister pours himself a glass of
red wine at his wedding in the "Game of Thrones".
His partner, Fanni Kovacs, 26, said she had been making
dough for potato scones when she remembered a scene from the
film "Ghost" with Demi Moore kneading clay and Patrick Swayze
embracing her from behind.
The couple, who used to work as improvisation actors before
the coronavirus crisis hit, quickly recreated the scene in their
kitchen using the scone dough. Viewers now write to them asking
for more, and also ask for scenes from specific movies.

"Fanni and I have always liked to dress up, and when we were
at university we went to a lot of costume parties. And of course
we both love movies and work with theatre," Norbert said.

Which scenes they select depends on what they can find at
home: flour instead of cocaine, tinned tomatoes instead of
blood, a vacuum cleaner instead of a gun.
"I just hope that these photos will bring a smile to
people's faces," Fanni said.
