Ildikó Bánsági, Djoko Rosic, János Derzsi, István Lénárt / Fiction / Hungarian
An adaptation of James M. Cains' classic The Postman Always Rings Twice, set in Hungary in the 1930s.
György Fehèr's aim was to "make a film which is similar to the last salvaged print of a long lost film". The passions he investigates are centred around primeval fears and cravings and a sense of inescapable doom. Shot in powerful black and white with excellent central performances. Programmed by Béla Tarr, one of EIFF 2011’s guest curators.
