Hungary. Dir. Peter Bergendy. 2011, 89 mins. DCP. In Hungarian with English subtitles. Presented by the Balassi Institute – Hungarian Cultural Center. With Zsolt Nagy, Janos Kulka, Peter Scherer, Andras Balogh, Gabriella Hamori. In the territory of secret agents, it is never easy to know who is watching whom, who is the hunter, and who is the hunted. In 1950s Communist Hungary, the secrets and enemy sides were aplenty and the stakes as high as they come. Loyalty to the state had to be proven and counter-revolutionaries uncovered, especially if they came in the form of a beautiful seductress. But who will be the last one left standing remains to be seen.
