Storyline

Political and sexual repression in Hungary, just after the revolution of 1956. In 1958, the body of Eva Szalanczky, a political journalist, is discovered near the border. Her friend Livia is in hospital with a broken neck; Livia's husband, Donci, is under arrest. In a flashback to the year before, we see what leads up to the tragedy. Eva gets a job as a writer. She meets Livia and is attracted to her. Livia feels much the same, but as a married woman, has doubts and hesitations. In their work, they (and Eva in particular) bang up against the limits of telling political truths; in private, they confront the limits of living out sexual and emotional truth.

A film I never forgot.
5 November 2013 | by i-spookieSee all my reviews

There's not much to be said about this masterpiece of Károly Makk that has not been said already. It captures the feeling of oppression on all levels and yet maintains the integrity of the people concerned. It is a bleak tale - maybe long gone - but the same happens in the Arab world today - just different. I hope they figure it out as Europe did.

The lesbian part of it is so beautiful, yet so unfulfilling for both of them due to the regime they live under. Nowadays they would have met, fallen in love and maybe married. That is a nice thought. I would have wished that for them. But - alas....

The acting were superb for both our lead ladies - and everybody around them really. And what a musical score - I know I am old, but that kind of music never left me cold. For young people of today - have a peak at this movie - you will learn something of the near past.
