Film Roundup: Hungary

Director: Gyorgy Palfi

Producers: Peter Miskloczi, Gabor Varadi, Gyorgy Palfi

Stars: Istvan Szule, Gyongyver Orszagh, Kim Corbisier, Kamilla Fatyol, Zsolt Pall, Csaba Gosztonyi, Csaba Czene, Kati Farkas, Eszter Toth

The scoop: An urban black comedy and the latest film from the enfant terrible of Hungarian cinema (Palfi’s reputation was established by virtually dialogue-free “Hukkle” in 2002 and deliberately shocking “Taxidermia” in 2006) is a series of loosely connected stories of Budapest folk that owes much to improvisation. The stories told could be those of any of the film’s viewers — with couples in love but holding secrets from each other, characters satisfying their own needs by caring for others, relationships moving through an arc of events entirely improvised during 20 days of shooting in Budapest. Feature is accompanied by a 13-minute documentary, “I Will Not Be Your Friend,” about a day in the lives of a group of 4-year-old kindergarden students.

Director: Roland Vranik

Producers: Gabor Kovacs, Agi Pataki, Gabor Rajna, Gabor Sipos

Stars: Karoly Hajduk, Zoltan Ratoti, Sandor Terhes, Katalin Weber, Eva Kerekes, Ferenc Lengyel

The scoop: An absurd tragicomedy set in a dystopian world where computers, televisions, mobile telephones and other telecom devices have stopped functioning. Deprived of their electronic distractions, people are suffering severe withdrawal symptoms, and as society slowly begins to find alternative ways of living, three brothers struggle to make sense of and try to overcome their own personal tragedies in a world crumbling to pieces around them.
