Director Éva Gárdos revisits film noir classics such as Chinatown in this stylish reimagining of Budapest in 1936, shortly before Hungary turned fascist. Investigating the mysterious death of a Jewish woman, charismatic reporter Zsigmond dives into the capital’s underworld. In its brothels and boxing rings and amidst corrupted politicians and gangsters, he finds a city on the verge of eruption. A stunning glimpse into Hungarian urban life on the eve of the Second World War and a beautiful homage to the golden era of cinema.
