English Summary:

Fargo is a 1996 black comedy crime film written, produced and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. Frances McDormand stars as Marge Gunderson, a pregnant Minnesota police chief investigating roadside homicides that ensue after a desperate car salesman (William H. Macy) hires two criminals (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife in order to extort a hefty ransom from his wealthy father-in-law (Harve Presnell). The film was an international co-production between the United States and United Kingdom.

In the winter of 1987, Jerry Lundegaard, the sales manager at an Oldsmobile dealership in Minneapolis, is desperate for money. He floats a GMAC loan worth $320,000, which he collateralizes with nonexistent vehicles and is unable to pay back. On the advice of the dealership mechanic (and paroled ex-convict) Shep Proudfoot, Jerry travels to Fargo, North Dakota and hires a duo of small-time criminals consisting of an outlaw named Carl Showalter and his sidekick and partner in-crime Gaear Grimsrud to kidnap his wife, Jean, and extort a ransom from his wealthy father-in-law and dealership boss, Wade Gustafson. Payment would be a new car, and half of the $80,000 ransom.

Jerry pitches Wade a lucrative real estate deal, and believes Wade has agreed to front him $750,000. Jerry tries to get Shep to call off the kidnapping but is unsuccessful. Jerry then learns that Wade plans to make the deal himself, giving Jerry only a finder's fee. At Jerry's home, Carl and Gaear carry out the arranged kidnapping. As they transport Jean to their remote cabin on Moose Lake, a state trooper pulls them over outside Brainerd for driving without temporary tags. Carl's attempt to bribe the trooper fails, and when the trooper hears a sound from the back seat where Jean is tied up, Gaear kills him, then chases down two witnesses and shoots them dead as well.


Hungarian Summary:

Minnesota álmos, havas vidékén - hogy nagy üzleti tervét valóra váltsa - a használtautó-kereskedő elraboltatja saját feleségét. Az ötlet remek, hősünk csupán azzal nem számolt, hogy sikerült Amerika két legbetegebb elméjű pszichopatáját felbérelnie. gy az őslakosok hamar úgy kezdenek hullani, mint a legyek. Ám jő a terhes rendőrnő, és a piték s burgerek majszolása közben - mintegy mellékesen - lefüleli a gazokat.
