Interesting, but too melancholic!
4 March 2008 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

It's a Hungarian movie about the relationship of a psychiatrist and his patient, which has an uncontrollable impulse to write (some kind of diary). The relationship starts getting deeper and deeper to the point of the madwoman think they're "husband and wife"…

The plot is set in the beginning of the 20th century and it's always passed inside an institution (for mad people). The movie has artsy cinematography (in the "traditional" European way) but it's too slow paced and boring at parts. However, the plot, the acting and the production are not bad, but even so I can't score it more than 5/10 because of its melancholy!
