Filmmaking and insanity become a shot/reverse shot pattern.

Successful film director Adél Bódi has it all – unfortunately. A film in promotion; a jealous actor husband downloading porn; and debilitating industrial noises mugging her sanity… Coupling sinewy tracking shots with a narrative that is almost viral in its attention to character, the director of White Palms (EIFF 2006) constructs a bravura critique of the Hungarian psyche and film industry. Not since Run Lola Run have bodies in motion been so exhilarating.
