Stark Sociopolitical Mood Piece, Brilliant Acting
18 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

After seeing Fábri's excellent "Körhinta" (1956) the other day I felt compelled to review this film which I saw several years ago. I remember it being a spare but effective exploration of class dynamics, framing and lighting illuminating Fábri's subtle political insights. Perhaps a more persuasive argument for neophytes to seek out an old, obscure Hungarian film is to give exposure to the brilliant performance by Törőcsik Mari, as compelling a victim-aggressor as Catherine Deneuve would be some time later in Polański's "Repulsion", if not more so. She has a face and voice born for the pictures - both soft, innocent, a little naïve, but capable of expressing massive shifts in emotion or psychology with slight fluctuations.

Bonuses - Mezei Mária's striking bitchiness as the titular Anna's high-class mistress and a truly inspired nightmare sequence (how did they do that?!).
