Description:

Hungarian movie. The film is about a man who is promoted and given a new assignment at his work-place. At home, he stares at a video-cassette: it portrays his wife's face in countless versions, she is sometimes simply beautiful, then unfathomable, but it is mostly a sad, closed, lonely face. His wife gets home, they quarrel, then she tells him that she goes back to live with her mother. They cross a construction site towards the railway station, then say good-bye. The man joins a drunkard to a pub. A detective arrives, reporting that his wife has been found dead, with signs of assault on her body. Investigation, self-examination, versions of remembrance starts. Later it is revealed that the murder, the police-investigation and the suicide were nothing else but a dream. However, the lack of understanding, avoiding to face and solve problems is, reality.(source: mandarchiv.hu). The movie was written and directed by Ferenc Grunwalsky a cult figure of underground Hungarian film industry. The author of the poster, Istvan Banyai always creates unique compositions and prefers to incorporate exquisite conceptions into his posters, drawing elements from the traditions of visual art. On his other posters, we sense the decorative attitude of secessionism (Art Noveau) mixed with pop art, the visual world of comics, and popular or “trash” culture. His movie posters often employ horror effects, monumental visions, and absurd details. These posters preserve the style of comics and animation, though with high artistic qualities. Banyai describes his art as "an organic combination of turn-of-the-century Viennese retro, interjected with American pop, some European absurdity added for flavor, served on a cartoon-style color palette... no social realism added."
