Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #52. György Pálfi’s Mindörökké (For Ever)

Mindörökké

Director: György Pálfi
Writer: György Pálfi, Zsofia Ruttkay

We’ve been waiting a long time for Hungarian auteur György Pálfi‘s ambitious project The Voice to transpire, but as that develops, he continues to work on other features. Though he’s perhaps still best known for his 2006 sophomore feature, Taxidermia, he won Best Director at Karlovy Vary in 2014 for the equally bizarre Free Fall (which we hopes picks up US distribution someday). In mid-2015, Palfi opened an Indiegogo for post-production of his latest, Mindörökké (For Ever), based on a novel by Sandor Tar about a post-apocalyptic Hungarian-Ukrainian village. Knowing Pálfi’s particular visual flair and frequency of bizarre narratives, we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us.

Cast: Julia Ubrankovics, Tamas Polgar, Attila Menszator-Heresz

Production Co.: KMH Film, Sunpunks Entertainment

U.S. Distributor: Rights available TBD (domestic/international)

Release Date: Palfi has yet to present in Berlin, and the timing could be right for a premiere there. Taxidermia premiered in UCR at Cannes, so we wouldn’t be surprised to him turn up there, either.
