Napszállta
Hungary/France, 2018, 142mins, Cert.15

Film description

From László Nemes, the Oscar-winning director of Son of Saul, comes this sublimely evocative recreation of 1913 Budapest, a city at the crux of world history. Irisz Leiter (Juli Jakab) arrives in the capital eager to become a milliner at her late parents’ legendary hat shop. But she is drawn into the mystery of what happened to her long-missing brother. Her search will lead her into a dazzling panorama of the dying gasps of the Austro-Hungarian empire. 

Perfectly pitched between dream and nightmare, with real lives caught in the web of history, Sunset is a worthy successor to Son of Saul. 

*****

We'll be bringing Sunset back for a one off 35mm screening on Sunday 14th July at 2.30pm. Sunset was shot on 35mm by cinematographer Mátyás Erdély who also worked on Son of Saul. Nemes is a great advocate for 35mm so we are pleased to be able to share the film on this beautiful format with our audience.
