BAD POEMSGabor Reisz
Directed by Gábor REISZ
Hungary, Frace, 2018
Section: Current Relative Cinema
33-year-old Tamas is heartbroken after his girlfriend Anna, who is on a scholarship in Paris, breaks up with him. While wallowing in self-pity, Tamas takes a trip down memory lane to figure out if love only exists when it’s practically gone. As he’s trying to pick up the pieces, he begins to realize what makes this current society so confused. An unique, charming and highly subjective view of Hungary’s present times.
