Representing Hungary at the 2021 Oscars

A neurosurgeon returns to Budapest to reunite with the love of her life: a man who says they have never met.

“A beautiful and acute rendering of what could be if some of the most implausible lies we tell ourselves were in fact true.” – Carlos Aguilar, RogerEbert.com

“A wonderfully mysterious new film from Hungarian writer-director Lili Horvát…. At first glance, it appears to be a strange, noirish tale of love and misunderstanding….That the would-be lovers are both neurosurgeons offers an early insight into one of the story’s other subjects: the inner workings of the brain and the intricate, unpredictable circuitry that connects them to the desires of the heart.

But the movie… is also about something more concrete and less abstract, though not necessarily easier to parse.   I am referring to the calm, otherworldly countenance of its protagonist, Dr. Márta Vizy, which is to say the actor Natasa Stork, whose coolly appraising gaze might be the most extraordinary visual effect, digitally manufactured or otherwise, I’ve encountered in recent movies.   Márta’s piercing blue eyes may be the windows to her soul, but their power is directed as much outward as inward.   Without saying a word — indeed, by drawing on the innate power of stillness and silence — she transforms the very act of looking into a source of considerable suspense, sensuality and excitement.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

Language: Hungarian, English (English subtitles)

Length: 1 hr. 35 min.
