Stream of Love (Szerelempatak)
Romania. Dir. Ágnes Sós. 2013, 70 mins. New York Premiere. In Hungarian with English subtitles. Love and desire fill the minds of villagers in a Hungarian-speaking village in Transylvania, even in their old age. Time has stood still here, and although most of the village’s inhabitants are elderly, they are refreshingly young at heart. Feri, for example, is an incurable romantic. Way past his 80th year, he’s still making moves on the village’s 25 widows—although he claims that only two or three of them are really worth the effort. And the women speak plainly when sharing their most intimate thoughts and dreams to the camera. Stream of Love is a funny, surprising, and heartwarming documentary that reveals how the ancient game of love and romance is still being played in this remote village, with its aura of bygone days.
