In a small town, Tamas, a coal miner, meets Juli, a kindergarten teacher, and begins dating her. Their first dates are always disrupted, but they end with a date on New Year's Eve, 1999.


The film was produced for the 2000, Seen By... project,[1] initiated by the French company Haut et Court to produce films depicting the approaching turn of the millennium seen from the perspectives of 10 different countries.[2]


Deborah Young of Variety called Tamas and Juli "a slight but sensitively handled love story," and "a decent, warmhearted examination of the difficulties of young love."[3] Ted Shen of the Chicago Reader writes that Enyedi "communicates romance elliptically, through the lovers' hesitations, doleful expressions, and broad smiles."[4]
