2015, 98 min, Hungary, Dir: Károly Ujj Mészáros

This Hungarian hit offers a distinctive blend of black comedy and fairy tale. While working as a caregiver, Liza (Mónika Balsai) becomes obsessed with Japanese romance novels and begins looking for love in earnest after her patient dies. A ghostly pop singer serves as a companion in Liza’s daydreams, but her more earthly potential love interests all seem to have fatal accidents – could it be that Liza is a fox-fairy from Japanese mythology? With awards from several festivals worldwide for its fantastic premise and bold cinematography, this quirky, humorous film should not be missed. “An impressive, special effects-laden genre mashup.” - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter. In Hungarian and Japanese with English subtitles.
