Storyline

A slaughterhouse in Budapest is the setting of a strangely beautiful love story. Mária starts working as the new quality controller. She takes her job seriously and adheres strictly to the rules. Her slightly older boss Endre is also the quiet type. Tentatively, they begin to get to know each other. Recognising their spiritual kinship, they are amazed to discover that they even have the same dreams at night. Carefully, they attempt to make them come true. This story of two people discovering the realm of emotions and physical desire, at first individually and then together, is tenderly told by director Ildikó Enyedi, but in a way that also exudes subtle humour. A film about the fears associated with opening up to others, and about how exhilarating it can be when you finally do.

Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1955, Ildikó Enyedi began her career as a concept and media artist before turning to short and feature films as a writer and director. She has received more than 40 international awards for her work. Her film My 20th Century was chosen as one of the best 12 Hungarian films of all time. In 1992 she was a member of the Berlinale’s International Jury. She teaches masterclasses in film at the University of Theatre and Film Arts, Budapest.
