Synopsis

Macskajatek
Love and heartbreak are not just for the young, as this Hungarian film shows. Nominated for the 1974 Academy Award for "Best Foreign Film," it tells the story of two sixtyish sisters. The younger sister, a singing teacher, has remained in Hungary, and the older one lives in West Germany. Despite many requests from her older sister, the teacher remains in Hungary at least partly due to her love for a retired opera singer. As letters pass between the two sisters, many flashbacks tell the story of their childhood. When the younger sister discovers that the opera singer has a new girlfriend, she takes drastic action to deal with her rejection. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Szerelem
This tender black-and-white Hungarian drama takes place in the '50s. A woman's (Mari Torocsik) husband has been arrested by the Hungarian secret police and imprisoned as a dissident. The young wife lives with her mother-in-law (Lili Darvas), a sweet and magnetic woman, appears to believe that her son has emigrated to America. Unable to do anything about her husband's imprisonment, the daughter-in-law keeps the old woman's good cheer alive by concocting a series of letters from her husband, wherein he does incredible and wonderful things. The two of them share the older lady's memories of a gentler time. When the husband is finally released, his mother has already passed away, but the love he and his wife share is shown. The role of the mother-in-law was played, at the request of the director, by octogenarian Lili Darvas, the wife of the famous Hungarian playwright and novelist Ferenc Molnar (1878-1952). ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
