Szerelem (1971)

– Dumme gans!

A frail, confused old woman and her appearance-upkeeping daughter-in-law acts out a constant, anti-Bechdelian discussion about the absent son/husband. Fragments of life are shown as details and memories flickering by in hurried, repetitive cuts, successively revealing shadow-life glimpses from turn-of-the-century upper class pastimes and fifties socialist suppression.

– The comrades are stewing in their own juices.

A human stilleben tenderly depicting simple acts of everyday kindness despite pressing circumstances. Maybe in my book of dark truths and loving lies.

– When people are half honest, like we are, we only feel half the humiliation.
