A tough, uncompromising and multi-award winning film about the right to follow your own convictions.
Dir Márta Mészáros
With Lili Monori, Jan Nowicki, Katalin Berek, Hedvig Demeter
Certificate Advised 15
Mészáros’ first film in colour shocked some contemporary audiences with its final documentary scene. Pushing the boundaries of traditional family, Juli (Monori) has to be resourceful to juggle study, work and single parenthood. Jan Nowicki plays János, whose love might be guided more by social compliance than personal passion. This often uncompromising drama of mismatched aspirations places domesticity and work as characters alongside the individuals.
