The Age of Love is a 1965 original Hungarian vintage movie poster designed by Margit Sándor.
Margit Sándor was an important graphic artist whose masters were György Konecsni and István Köpeczi Bócz. She developed a very unique style, influenced by art tendencies of the time, like Pop Art, Op Art and the modern design style of the 1960s. Her works, where she used strong colours and sharply drawn, floating shapes, appear to be clear Pop Art compositions. Other works by her are built up on the effective contrasts of colors and shapes.
This poster belongs to the latter category. She used paper cut out and photography on this poster where a man and a woman are holding a heart in their hand. The heart is strong enough to lift them up to the sky despite the weight on the ankle of the man. The composition perfectly expresses the message of the film: love is strong enough to overtake all obstacles which may come across.
Director: Francisc Munteanu.
