ON BODY AND SOUL
Oscar Nomination 2018 – BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
Winner of the Golden Bear at the 2017 Berlinale, this film tells the story of two outcasts who find love in a Hungarian abattoir. They are both fastidious loners, but at night, they share the same dreams – a mystical but matter-of-fact connection that transforms both into deer in a sparkling winter woodland. The details of animal butchery in the abattoir contrast against the delicate suspense of the dream sequences.
