The Noise of Licking
(A nyalintás nesze)
2017, animated shorts, digital, 9 minutes
PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2016.
PREMIER (INTERNATIONAL): 2017. 5.
A woman is watched every day by the neighbor's cat, as she takes care of her exotic plants.
This perverted ritual comes to an end when the cat disappears.
Next spring a peculiar stranger pays her a visit.
"My film was inspired by a short story written by Ádám Bodor, in which I was initially captivated by the absurd situation of an unexpected visitor silently watching a woman in her own living room as she is going about her day. Introducing another layer of voyeurism and sexuality to the original work, my aim was to capture an atmosphere in which we have a glimpse of the characters’ various ways of coping with loneliness, desire, sometimes self-destructing fetishes, and where at times it is difficult to differentiate between reality and imagination."
