"Down by Love"
Directed by Tamas Sas
Directed by acclaimed Hungarian
cinematographer Tamas Sas, Down By Love stars Patricia Kovacs as Eva,
a young woman living alone in a flat bequeathed to her by her parents. Eva's
relationship with Tibor, an older married man, provides the only excitement
in her life, but when she returns from a holiday she begins to discover the
unsettling truth about his intentions. By focusing his lens almost
exclusively on Kovacs, Sas fashions a daringly experimental film that
"emerges as a fresh, challenging, and unpredictable experience with a
stunning finish" (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times). Winner of the
Best Artistic Contribution Award at the Cairo International Film Festival.
Hungarian with English subtitles. 90 minutes.
