Hungarian director László Nemes follows up the most award-winning debut film ever, Saul's son, which won an Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA for Best Foreign Film 2016, with a drama about the disintegrating Budapest 1913. Irisz Leiter a 20-year-old orphaned fashionist moves to the city to look for work at Leiter, her dead parents' exclusive hat shop. To her surprise, she does not get the job. Instead, a stranger shows up and starts asking questions about her father. As she investigates her family's past, she realizes that not everything is as it seems. Kerstin Gezelius on Dagens Nyheter calls this "a dreamy, furiously beautiful film". "An aesthetic that we haven't seen since the silent masters Fritz Lang's and Murnau's days," says Fredrik Sahlin at SVT's Kulturnyheterna. The film also won the critics award at the Venice Film Festival.
