Storyline

Using almost no dialogue, the film follows a number of residents (both human and animal) of a small rural community in Hungary - an old man with hiccups, a shepherdess and her sheep, an old woman who may or may not be up to no good, some folk-singers at a wedding, etc. While most of the film is a series of vignettes, there is a sinister and often barely perceptible subplot involving murder.

Awesome!
20 March 2004 | by MadHungarianSee all my reviews

The best movie I have seen in many many years. I very unique and well developed idea. To me this is what film making is all about. It was recommended by a friend who owns a video store in Hungary and sees countless movies all the time. I was simply mesmerized by the cinematography, sound, and video effects. Hollywood film making is way behind the sophisticated European thinking and creating. Now if I can just figure out where to buy this film in the US. Bravo Bravo Bravo
