Storyline

During a film course lead by Yvette Biro at the Hungarian Academy of Drama and film in 1995, the director students were shown a black-and-white photo taken by Lucien Herve in 1952, and they were given the task of writing a short film based on it. Three women are standing at the outskirts of a village, looking out of the picture in the same direction. This six-minute one-shot film shows what the Herve photo does not. Written by Duna Workshop

A stern, raw, one breath-timing journey
12 August 2005 | by (Dunakeszi, Hungary) – See all my reviews

A stern, raw, one breath-timing journey, and the even darker conclusion. One picture, three women, so many sorrow - after all the unsolvable mystery. It's more than a film, more than an work of art, it's just like a poem without words, something incomprehensible, something personal called life. I saw this film 10 years ago, and I still remember it, because it's so powerful and awesome. That's why I really love the art movies, i'ts timeless, worthy and beautiful. The director was inspired by a photo, and he makes a whole world not with colors, but passion. Grab it,check it, and go over again and again......
