#46. János Szász’s The Notebook
Gist: Not your remake of the Ryan Gosling film, based on Agota Kritóf‘s famous and bestselling novel of the same name (Le Grand Cahier), in a village on the Hungarian border, two young brothers grow up during war time with their cruel grandmother and must learn every trick of evil to survive in the absurd world of adults. Ulrich Thomsen and Ulrich Matthes are among the cast.
Prediction: Filling in the Hungarian film product quota, the veteran helmer has not been to the festival since 97’s Witman fiúk – which screened in the Un Certain Regard section. I think we might be looking at a repeat in the same section.
