Dir. László Nemes. France/Hungary, 2018. 2h 22m. Hungarian/subs. Starring Susanne Wuest, Juli Jakab, Levente Molnár, Vlad Ivanov, Evelin Dobos, Urs Rechn.

Just before the outbreak of the First World War, a young woman returns to her hometown of Budapest to unearth the secrets of her family tree and to try and find the brother she never knew she had. A mesmerising portrayal of a society caught at the crossroads from the director of Oscar-winning masterpiece Son of Saul.

‘It’s a very mysterious and even bizarre film in many ways, shot in what is becoming Nemes’ signature style…An entirely absorbing film.’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘I won't be deterred from believing that Nemes is a genius of some kind.’ Nigel Andrew, The FT
