Second Run Sundays: Merry-Go-Round (Körhinta)

MERRY-GO-ROUND (KÖRHINTA), 1955 + Introduction Zoltán Fábri's beloved film is considered one of the finest in all of Hungarian cinema. A love story set against the rural backdrop of communist farming collectives, a young girl (the late, great Mari Törőcsik in her film debut) falls for farm worker Máté, but is betrothed by her domineering father to another man. Gorgeous free-wheeling camera work combines with expressive editing and evocative use of music to powerfully convey the freedom love offers in the face of repression. This pastoral on Romeo and Juliet is a rich and achingly beautiful work, framed by the turbulent changes in society taking place in 1950s Hungary. "Merry-Go-Round is the pinnacle of Hungarian cinema" István Szábo "It resounds with love" Jean CocteauDramaPT1H30M152024-07-07
