On a sweltering August day in 1945, villagers in a small town in Soviet-occupied Hungary prepare for the wedding of the town clerk’s son. Meanwhile, a pair of mysterious black-clad men arrive at the village train station with large boxes labelled “fragrances,” and these strangers’ appearance becomes the catalyst for secrets of the recent past bubbling to the surface. The clerk fears the men may be heirs of the village’s deported Jews, and expects them to demand their unjustly acquired property back, originally lost during the war. Other villagers are afraid more survivors will come, posing a threat to the property and possessions they have claimed as their own. A stunningly beautiful post-war “Western” like no other, this stark and gripping drama is a revelation that will stick with you long after the lights come up.
Hungary, 2017, 91 min, Directed by Ferenc Torok, Not Rated, In Hungarian and Russian with English subtitles
