Details

Ildikó Enyedi’s fairytale-like, unconventional Hungarian comedy drama presents a feminist counter-history of the 20th century, celebrating electricity, love, movies and the infinite possibilities of man and woman.

Born in Budapest, Lila (Dorotha Segda) and Dora (also Segda) are twin sisters who, after being orphaned in childhood, are adopted by two different families and separated. Purely by chance, they both book passage on the Orient Express on the same day, but while Dora is the mistress of a rich man, Lila has become a terrorist with intentions of blowing up the train.

The film earned Enyedi the Golden Camera award at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival, and deservedly so. It is a heady mix of wit and hilarious surrealism, which combined with gorgeous black and white cinematography, create a truly breath taking and unique cinematic experience.

Presented as part of Cinema Rediscovered on Tour, a Watershed project with support from BFI awarding funds from The National Lottery and the Hungarian National Film Archive.
