Storyline

A hot summer day six young men and two young women meet at the beach beside a deep river. After a while they go for a swim. At a point where the river is 8 meters deep, one of the boys gets the idea of diving to the bottom, and to bring up a handful of clay as a proof of the feat. The others follow his example. Back on dry land one of the girls suddenly wonders where Gabi is. When they figure out that no one has seen him coming up from the river, they get worried. Gabi's clothes are still on the beach, and they start searching for him along the banks and in the water. Finally they have to call the police, who start dragging the river. The corpse isn't found, and the following days Gabi's friends display different reactions to the loss. Some had unsettled matters with him, which now never can be solved. Some have already started to forget his face. At the third day the body is found. Summer is gone, and the circle of friends disbands. Some go to a bigger city for studies, while others ...

the poetry of things
22 June 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

a group of young people. a summer day near Tisza. games, dialogues, the short stories of high school graduates and students. and the death of one from them. the old grandmother of Gabi. his friends. the pain. and force of images of ordinary things. a bread on water. the regrets and remorse, arguments, memories, different social classes. and the future who becomes the only reality. after decades, the film of Istvan Gaal remains admirable for its delicate, touching poetry. the poetry of images of simple objects.like frame and bones of story. the poetry of the boat near the bread . the poetry of certitudes of adults. in same measure, the second great virtue is the performance of young actors. especially Sandor Csikor. and, not doubt, the special, unique Hungarian spirit reflected in the admirable manner.
