A Piacere

Hungary, 1977 (MIFF 1978)

Director: Zoltán Huszárik

The Director, Zoltan Huszarik (Sinbad), visited cemeteries in numerous countries in his attempt to show human beings' craving to create 'imperishable marks', to leave behind some 'trace that would endure' once they are gone.

The keynote of this philosophically-inspired film is dismay at the prospect of mortality, a phenomenon that remains baffling and incomprehensible for al! that is reluctantly accepted as a fact.
