Directed by Danniel Danniel
One of the gems of the
Cannes Film Festival, this remarkable film from Holland is the story of Johan, a quiet,
good-hearted, 35-year-old baker who answers a personal ad from a lonely schoolteacher
named Eva. After an exchange of many letters, Eva comes to town and surprises the entire
village when she decides to stay. Egg is a delightfully deadpan romantic
fable in the spirit of Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati.
Dutch with English subtitles.
