Storyline

1913, Budapest, in the heart of Europe. The young Irisz Leiter arrives in the Hungarian capital with high hopes to work as a milliner at the legendary hat store that belonged to her late parents. She is nonetheless sent away by the new owner, Oszkár Brill. While preparations are under way at the Leiter hat store, to host guests of uttermost importance, a man abruptly comes to Irisz, looking for a certain Kálmán Leiter. Refusing to leave the city, the young woman follows Kálmán's tracks, her only link to a lost past. Her quest brings her through the dark streets of Budapest, where only the Leiter hat store shines, into the turmoil of a civilization on the eve of its downfall.

A spectacular cinematic and dramatic film
28 April 2019 | by bradman81-732-957890See all my reviews

Sunset is, on all levels a film so rich that it needs and deserves to be watched many times.

Finally we have a film maker who not only takes risks with audiences expecting a standard narrative and cinematic experience, but more critical, he and entire cat and crew succeed to create a moving and compelling experience.

Hard to believe we have both innovation and a film that will reward all viewers who are able to set aside their normal expectations.

I was really touched by this for and also excited to come upon amazing film experience.

Intended or not. I found much of Bela Tarr and Miklos Jancso.

Thank you Kaszlo Nemes!!!!
