New US Trailer for Oscar-Nominated Hungarian Film 'On Body & Soul'
"Is it possible that two people dream the same thing?" Netflix has released a new official US trailer for the Hungarian romantic drama On Body and Soul, which is one of the Best Foreign Language Film nominees at the Academy Awards this year. It completely deserves this nomination, it's such an outstanding, tender, heartfelt film. Directed by Hungarian filmmaker Ildikó Enyedi, this tells the story of two shy people who work at a slaughterhouse in Hungary. They both have the same dream - where they are deer in a forest - and when they discover this, they try to figure out how to be together, but it's not easy in real life. Alexandra Borbély stars as the woman, Mária, and Géza Morcsányi as the man, Endre. I just watched this recently thanks to Netflix and totally loved it. Please take a moment and see this film, it's good for your heart & soul.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Ildikó Enyedi's On Body and Soul, direct from YouTube:
When slaughterhouse workers Endre and Mária discover they share the same dreams - where they meet in a forest as deer and fall in love - they decide to make their dreams come true but it's difficult in real life. On Body and Soul is both written and directed by Hungarian filmmaker Ildikó Enyedi, of the films Mole, My Twentieth Century, Magic Hunter, A Gyár, Tamas and Juli, and Simon the Magician previously. This first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival last year, where it won the Golden Bear top jury prize playing in competition. This also played at the Sydney, Moscow, Sarajevo, Toronto, and Philadelphia Film Festivals. It is one of the five Best Foreign Language Film nominees at the 2018 Academy Awards. Netflix has released On Body and Soul streaming exclusively already - it is available to watch now. Add it to your list. Thoughts?

Hungarian is such a cool language. It reminds me of Portuguese in the blending of of two nearby languages.

Hungarians can do films, write good books but their sense for politics is rubbish. I know this, they are my ancestors. However, this looks great ...

Looks beautiful. Might have to give it a go. @dawisebuddha:disqus is it slow? Or a "good" slow?

It's good slow, for sure. It's slow in a really beautiful way, but the scenes are brisk and keep your attention. It's not a slow burn (I'm not a fan of these). I really, really recommend seeing this film.

Awesome! Thanks for perfectly understanding what I was asking in regard to "good" slow, haha!

I absolutely love this movie. I've seen it several times. Such a beautiful love story. Not all people fit the modern, accepted profile. These two do not, and watching their honest, pure struggle as they fall I love is so moving.
