"Tamas and Juli"
Directed by Ildiko Enyedi
A young, socially awkward coal miner and a shy
kindergarten teacher slowly overcome their introverted ways and begin to
fall in love. Their romance, however, is hindered by the dominating presence
of the coal mine, a force that proves especially overpowering on December
31, 1999. A strong commentary on man and the machinery of life. Part of the
2000 Seen by.. series, in which French television commissioned
several filmmakers from around the world to make a film using the impending
millennium as the subject or background. Hungarian with English subtitles.
