An homage to FW Murnau’s 1927 drama “Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans. “In the Austro-Hungarian Empire, shortly before the First World War, the enigmatic Írisz Leiter (Juli Jakab) causes a stir when she enters an elegant Budapest department store specializing in women’s hats. The sense of disquiet that fills the store soon pervades the entire film as we learn the reason for Írisz’s visit: the shop once belonged to her parents, and her return reveals a past full of troubling family secrets. Using exquisite 35mm and 65mm film, Hungarian director László Nemes recreates the twilight of an era in all its sensual detail, with an attention to high fashion and the art of millinery that rivals 2017’s Phantom Thread. The intensity of Sunset is unmistakable, confirming Nemes’ extraordinary talent in this follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2015 feature debut, Son of Saul.” (TIFF)

Reviews

Sunset” confirms the Oscar-winning “Son of Saul” director as a major talent, one whose sophomore feature is both astonishingly beautiful and profoundly sorrowful: It unfolds like a cross between a memory and a dream...breathtaking.
