2018 Oscar® Selection, Hungary

Winner of the Golden Bear at the 2017 Berlinale, Ildikó Enyedi's (THE MAGICIAN, MY TWENTIETH CENTURY, SIMON) first film in 18 years is a surreal love story about two misfits in a Budapest slaughterhouse. Mária (Alexandra Borbély), the new quality controller, has an exacting eye for perfection that has not won her any popularity points. Endre (Géza Morcsányi), the financial controller, is a quiet man with his own problems. When the pair discover that they share the same dream — literally — the century's strangest romance begins to unfold. Moving from documentary-like depictions of the slaughterhouse's inner workings to ravishingly shot dream sequences, this is one of the most original films of the year. Winner, Golden Bear, FIPRESCI Prize, Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, 2017 Berlin Film Festival; Official Selection, 2017 Toronto, Sydney, Philadelphia film festivals.
