The Days of Desire (A Vágyakozás Napjai)
Catherine Wilkening, Orsolya Schefcsik, Zsoit László, Ákos Orosz / Fiction / Hungarian
Actions speak louder, in this beautiful study of intimacy and betrayal.
Anna, a mute teenager, takes a job as housekeeper to a wealthy but unhappy couple, who quickly install her as the heart of their fractured household. All three glimpse the possibility of redemption – but when Anna falls in love, the idyll is threatened, and tensions invade. Ravishingly shot in black and white, this is a compelling, mysterious character study, in the rich tradition of Bela Tarr.
