Applying his technical virtuosity and immersive aesthetic to a pivotal moment in history, Academy Award-winning filmmaker László Nemes (Son of Saul) returns with this spellbindingly elliptical portrait of Europe on the brink of WWI. In 1913, a determined young woman (Juli Jakab) returns to Budapest, years after her parents died in a mysterious incident. She finds work at the grand department store her father once owned and by night gradually uncovers troubling and ominous secrets about her family, amidst the tumult of social and political upheaval. 

In Hungarian and German with English subtitles.

A Sony Pictures Classics release.

Breathtaking… this is cinema with a capital C, the kind of film that image-makers will lust after as they study its many awe-inspiring scenes.”
