(Hungarian dialogue)

Award-winning distaff Magyar director Ildiko Enyedi’s contribution to the ” 2000 Vu Par” series is a slight but sensitively handled love story that is destined to end with a date on the evening of Dec. 31, 1999. Set in a small coal-mining town, pic mainly depicts the summer romance, when Tamas, a miner, and Juli, a shy kindergarten teacher, first meet. The tube is this item’s natural home.

Their initial dates are less than successful, with something or someone always conspiring to break the mood. When at last they kiss, the excited Tamas tries to move too fast and is forcefully rejected. These scenes, which unfold in balmy weather, are intercut with often striking winter images as the fate of the young lovers is gradually revealed.

Though “Tamas and Juli” lacks the magic of Enyedi’s much-admired “My Twentieth Century,” it’s a decent, warmhearted examination of the difficulties of young love, with solid performances from David Janosi as the maladroit Tamas and Marta Angyal as the unsophisticated Juli.

Camerawork by Tamas Sas is a major asset.
