Storyline

In Hungary's post-World War I depression era, a wanted one-eyed killer and retired gendarme lieutenant fells in love with a suicidal and disillusioned harlot. In hope of much-needed money, he seeks out one of his old cronies, a now wealthy butcher and businessman, to collect a debt. Tensions are running high as an eternal triangle is about to take shape between the butcher, the harlot and the one-eyed cutthroat. Written by Pisky

And the Oscar for best title goes to...
19 October 2017 | by Friend_of_MilhouseSee all my reviews

Hungary, the nineteen-twenties. A former prostitute on the run from her brothel and a disgraced army officer on the run from the law team up and flee to a small Hungarian village, where the butcher -and local big shot- still owes him money. While he employs the officer at his slaughterhouse, the butcher develops an unsound interest in the woman. Based on a true crime story, this is a darkly comic tale of lust, power, money and murder, set in stark, expressionistic black and white. A bleak joy from start to finish.
