feature, 35mm, 75 minutes

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2002.

An old man sitting on a bench has the hiccups, a drunken youth snores on a carriage, a kind old lady picks lilies of the valley, women sew in the dressmaker� shop, men are bowling in a pub, the bees make honey, a machine harvests the wheat that in the mill will be made into flour, and then into dumplings in Grandma� kitchen �and thoughout it all a policeman investigates a murder... A film with the deceptive appearance of a documentary, where each scene contains clues to a detective story.
This popular festival film has accumulated a number of trophies along the way, starting in its home country at the Hungarian Film Week where it picked up the Critics Award and Best Debut Film. Since then, the film took home four prizes at Cottbus including the Special Prize, Audience Award and the FIPRESCI Critics Prize, a Special Mention at San Sebastian and the European Film Awards European Discovery of the Year nod.
