Forest
(Rengeteg)

feature, 35mm, 95 minutes, 1:1.85

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2003.

Why would someone leave their dog at a stranger's place?
Why shouldn't we let into our homes those beings that only talk at night?
What does a father do if he finds his own daughter's body disgusting and provocative?
What is a waiter doing in the stomach of a gigantic fish that almost capsized a docked boat?
What does someone take with them when they go personally to meet a dead friend?
What does a girl do when she discovers she is becoming more and more like her sadistic grandmother who disappeared without a trace years ago?
How is it possible to find someone who ran his entire fortune through a paper-shredder?
The heroes and heroines of Forest live in Budapest, in a city that will one day disappear into the fog, like all the rest.
