Goofs

When Emernc and Magda are arguing about 'kitsch', Emernc stomps into the entryway and dumps the boot holding the umbrellas onto the floor. As she does, she is standing on a red rug, but when the camera angle switches to display the umbrellas and the boot, the rug is no where to be seen. As the camera shot switches, the rug is back.

sad but beautiful story
22 September 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I found this movie stunning. It transmits such a bittersweet feeling, sadness combined with a certain peace of mind, of heart perhaps... It's a movie that teaches you that you shouldn't be afraid of death,that loneliness,illness,the loss of beloved relatives can be worse than death. This movie tells you that you should never give up,and the main character, Emerenc's path is an example.She's a strong and straightforward woman, very decided when it comes to protect her intimacy and her memories from youth. She's helpful and loyal though cruel and blunt sometimes,she hides her feelings but they burst out in some wonderful scenes like the one with the china dog or the dinner where Evike never showed up. Best movie I've seen this year,the music and the lightning are extraordinary. The director, Szabo Istvan is entitled to receive many more credits than it had received until now.
