ON BODY AND SOUL – Offbeat and artsy romantic dramedy
After 35 years Hungary…Won the Golden Bear at the 2017 67th Berlin International Film Festival
On Body and Soul is a great piece of filmmaking. With exquisite direction, impeccable performances and visuals that are consistently striking, this profoundly sensitive and unconventional love story uses a lot of humor to depict in a most irresistible way the discovery of two damaged, solitary souls trying to make contact in a harsh world. It is one of the oldest stories of life but is handled with delicate psychological insight and two affecting performances by Alexandra Borbély and Géza Morcsányi.
