With an exquisite direction, impeccable performances and an absolutely wonderful screenplay, this profoundly sensitive and unconventional love story uses a lot of humor to depict in a most irresistible way the discovery of love by two lonely, introspective people.”

On Body and Soul

Delicate psychological insight, a strong aesthetic signature and two affecting, restrained performances by Alexandra Borbély and Géza Morcsányi overcome any familiarity.A combination of Terrence Malick, Michel Gondry and Woody Allen with its mix of the meditative, fantastical and neurotic.”
