On Body and Soul

Winner of the Berlinale’s Golden Bear and nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award, Hungarian director Ildikó Enyedi crafts a romance equally grounded in oftentimes shocking realism and the highest flights of fantasy in ON BODY AND SOUL.

In a slaughterhouse on the outskirts of Budapest, Endre (Géza Morcsányi) is the taciturn manager, prickly and with few friends. When he spots the shy new hygiene inspector Maria (Alexandra Borbély), she inspires deep feeling in him he hasn’t experienced in years. Unbeknownst to them both, Endre and Maria are actually meeting in each other’s dreams, and this eventual discovery will be the catalyst to, slowly but surely, propel them towards each other in their waking hours.

Surreal, graceful, eccentric and just as concerned with daily horrors as it is with striving for a sense of the sublime, there is nothing like the unique experience of ON BODY AND SOUL.
