On Body And Soul (18)

Ildikó Enyedi | Hungary | 2017 | 116’

Hungarian writer-director Ildiko Enyedi’s quirky, deadpan and sometimes rather brutal romantic dramedy delivers a mix of magical realist humor and stylized sensuality in this story of two lonely slaughterhouse employees who go to absurd lengths to fall into each other’s arms. The film’s most considerable achievement is to sustain its drama on a finely poised level of emotional intimacy, while sometimes hitting us with intense imagistic charges.

£7.30 (£5.50)
