"The Little Valentino"
Directed by Andras Jeles
A brilliant film
debut, and one of the most highly acclaimed European films of recent years, this
deceptively simple black and white feature anticipates and stylistically surpasses Jim
Jarmusch's Stranger than Paradise. The events of the film are concentrated on a
single day. The film focuses on Laszlo, a 20-year-old driver's assistant, who spends his
day and his money--which he has just stolen--in the aimlessness of everyday life.
"It's hard not to be impressed by its on-the-edge assurance" (Chicago Reader).
