Angelus

Hungary, 1973 (MIFF 1974)

Director: Zoltán Huszárik

A poetical homage to old women. who live among us, sentenced to loneliness. They live and do their work however old they are; devoid of pleasure but not of work. They set an example to young people, and console themselves with their pure and human life. Their life is a warning that we have to think over their heart-rending destiny and to care for them.

CIDALC, Cracow, 1973

Gold Medal, Barcelona, 1973.
