Trivia

Much like in Hungarian folklore, masculinity in the film is represented by a heart (actually a pair of testicles turned upside down) and femininity by a tulip. Marcell Jankovics claims he wasn't aware of the significance of these symbols while making the movie, and it was only by coincidence that they matched the symbolism of folk art. See more »
