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.

On my behalf, the movie is not about murder. It is simply about the cycle of life; mainly different causes of death thus beginning of life.
I saw Hukkle two years ago at the national film festival of Istanbul (2002). One of my favorite films and number one in its own, unique category. Every comment is acceptable but with an objective approach i would say that the movie basically explains how murder is actually only death. there is no killer, or victim but death is just a part of the life chain; whatever the cause. And "murder" only exists in "supernatural" (ex. Hollywood) films.
Great film, wonderful. The subject in one hand, the cinematography in the other.. the colors and the natural cycle is shown as it is. Loved it. I just want to be able to buy the original DVD. Any clue anyone. Preferably online...?
