film synopsis

László Nemes, whose astounding feature debut Son of Saul (PSIFF 2016) won a Best Foreign Language Oscar®, brings his distinctive visual style to a tale about the sunset of the Austro-Hungarian empire, set in Budapest during the second decade of the 20th century. Young Írisz Leiter arrives in the Hungarian capital hoping to work as a milliner at the legendary hat emporium that once belonged to her late parents. She is sent away by the new owner, Oszkár Brill, but she won't take no for an answer. As the shop prepares to host important guests, a man abruptly approaches Írisz asking about Kálmán Leiter, who he says is her brother. Refusing to leave the city, Írisz follows Kálmán's tracks, her only link to a lost past. Her quest brings her through the dark, dusty streets of Budapest into the turmoil of a civilization on the eve of its downfall.

In competition for the FIPRESCI Award.
