A wounded Syrian refugee discovers he’s been graced (cursed?) with the gift of flight in Kornél Mundruczó’s parable-like thriller. While skewering narrow-minded socio-political attitudes, the film provides us with some of the most astonishing visuals to appear onscreen this year.

film synopsis

Thoroughly cinematic and replete with images that will take your breath away, iconoclastic Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó’s parable-like drama offers up the tale of young Syrian refugee Aryan who, after being shot while attempting to cross the border into Hungary, discovers he is possessed of a magical power: he can fly. Aryan wants to use his befuddling new gift to find his missing father. Before he can do that, though, he comes under the influence of unscrupulous refugee-camp doctor Gabor, who sees nothing but dollar signs when considering Aryan’s power.

Mundruczó uses the men’s burgeoning relationship and a thriller-like plot to skewer the narrow-minded socio-political attitudes of his fellow citizens, while Aryan’s flights provide the director—and his gifted cinematographer, Marcell Rév—with ample opportunity to create some of the most lyrical and, frankly, astonishing visuals to grace cinema screens this year.
