Antal Gunda was a fine graphic artist who created a plenty of posters. He designed several exhibition posters, numerous propaganda posters, a lot of theatre posters and a great number of movie posters. His movie posters has an expressive character, often using watercolor paint or paper cut technique. He liked using roughly torn paper pieces in the paper cut, in order to create an expressive composition. This poster is a fine example for that. It captures the main characters, the couple huddle together on a bench, using blues and greens and a strong contrast. The result is a concentrated, simple and elegant design.
