HU 01 Hardship of Solitude

The short film block "Hardship of Solitude" examines contemporary issues in Hungary. In particular the phenomenon of isolation plays a central role here. Lonely figures struggle with diverse conflicts: A 36-year-old woman pursues her wish to have a child in a fertility clinic, a boy attempts to cope with a lovesick heart, a queer cleaning lady falls in love and a fox commits suicide. Others turn to humour to deal with their problems: here, for instance, we learn why the seats in a Budapest train station are arranged so far apart from one another.
