Istvan Szabo's Hungarian film (1979) is a perfect example of an intensely subjective cinema realized without a single overtly subjective shot. In a story of two wary individuals who are forced to live together in hiding during the Nazi occupation of Budapest, Szabo deftly weaves two disparate points of view into a seamlessly expressive whole. The film is romantic, erotic, and disturbing: though it is on the side of intimacy, it maintains a strict sense of the limits to human feeling. With Ildiko Bansagi (exquisite and subtle in a role that requires her to change her appearance as her character grows) and Peter Andorai.
