Storyline

Every day life for young men and women in Budapest is on display. All "teenage savages" at the time when communism disappeared in Eastern Europe, they now view the world in a sinister way. Examples: A woman becomes irritated with a man who has left his dog. A father has an argument with his wife about an alarming (to the parents) arousal of sexuality in their 10 y.o. daughter. A young girl is distressed by her growing realization that she is more and more like her sadistic grandmother. A conversation between two guys, apparently about an old car, takes an unexpected turn.

Postmodern Psychological Horror
5 January 2009 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw Rengeteg/Forest five years ago at the Toronto International Film Festival and I still clearly recall the mounting anxiety that each segment provoked and the intense feeling of disquiet I felt at its chilling conclusion. The gritty grainy quality of the image, the seemingly raw sound, provide an almost documentary feel--but the conversations among the characters are stylized and enigmatic, and grow dark, unsettling and surreal. The film seems defiantly uncinematic until you observe how what you're being shown contributes to the viewer's increasing disorientation and discomfort. I hope director Bendek Fliegauf has met with the success in his film-making career, as he is certainly a talent to be reckoned with.
