This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home for $8.99. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

Don’t be put off by the overly long title. This remarkable story of romantic obsession with influences from Kieslowski to Truffaut will have you on the edge of your seat. The Hungarian entry for Best International Feature at the Oscars is a mesmerizing film noir mystery which builds in suspense. “What if you fall so hard for someone that you convince yourself they love you back? At the shattering of such an illusion is where we meet Marta (Natasa Stork), an accomplished, 40-year-old neurosurgeon who hastily leaves behind her life and career in the U.S. to reunite with the man she loves. Yet when she arrives at their agreed-upon meeting point — the Pest end of Budapest’s Liberty Bridge — Janos (Viktor Bodo) is nowhere to be found. And when she tracks him down at the nearby medical institute, he claims to not know who she is.” – Beatrice Loayza, NY Times

Reviews

Superb...Hungarian director Lili Horvát’s deliciously reworked psychological noir is a spiral staircase, polished to a glossy shine, down which unreliable motivations, self-delusions and romantic obsessions tumble....gorgeous.

– Jessica Kiang, Variety

 

A multi-layered rumination on love, fate and the way individuals construct their own sense of reality.

– Allan Hunter, Screen Daily
