Hukkle
 
 
Directed by György Pálfi, Hungary 2003
78 mins. Hungarian and Czech dialogue with English sub-titles
 
Summary:
 
There is something dark and mysterious occurring in a small Hungarian village, but exactly what that is remains a secret, barely perceptible among the rhythms of everyday life.  A youth drives the milk cart and spies a young woman sunbathing.  An old woman plows her field, and a farmer's sow is fertilized.  But there is also a strange ritual that involves the villagers and the mailman, who presents items to every new widow when her husband dies - something that happens with regular frequency.
 
What the Critics say:
 
"You're in for an unforgettable experience, a microcosmic cornucopia of delights."  (Desson Thomson - Washington Post)
