Coeur de secours

Hungary, 1973 (MIFF 1975, Piotr Kamler Retrospective)

Director: Piotr Kamler

A fantastic, poetic, enigmatic, cybernetic and tonic tale from which we will learn that 'it is always the tight-rope walker who holds both ends of the rope', even if he needs a chess set and a candle, and that there is no point in running around with one heart . . .
