Storyline

Using almost no dialogue, the film follows a number of residents (both human and animal) of a small rural community in Hungary - an old man with hiccups, a shepherdess and her sheep, an old woman who may or may not be up to no good, some folk-singers at a wedding, etc. While most of the film is a series of vignettes, there is a sinister and often barely perceptible subplot involving murder.

Lyrical Drama
10 February 2003 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Unique! This film doesn't describe itself easily, but above all it's a very lyrical film underlined with a beautiful dramatic story about the life on the country somewhere in Hungary. All seems to go very peacefully, but somewhere underneath the skin it's like the animals in the film want to say that there is definately something going on!

The way you will find out about what is going on will leave you speechless for some time, wanting to see the movie again to possibly find hidden clues and/or messages you've failed to see the first time. This may be the best film that'll be released this year...
