Adrienn Pal

Pál Adrienn | Drama | Austria / France / Hungary / Netherlands , 2010 | 137 min
Director: Ágnes Kocsis
Casting: Izabella Hegyi(Zizi), Éva Gábor(Piroska), István Znamenák(Kálmán), Ákos Horváth(Endre), Lia Pokorny(Márta)

Piroska is an overweight, alienated nurse who can’t resist cream-filled pastries. She works in the terminal ward of a hospital her life is surrounded by death. One day she sets off to find her long-lost childhood friend. While tracing her recollections, she embarks on a paradox-filled voyage within her own memory and the memory of those she encounters. This film is an unusual, pedestrial transportation road movie, also offering a sort of cross-section of society as Piroska encounters entirely different lives and fates. From another perspective, it is an inner road movie, a story of development, showing the process through which Piroska comes to recognize herself, and simultaneously the manifold nature of reality and the subjectivity and relativity of memory.

Everyone has an unmentionable secret. But Titta Di Girolamo has more than one. It's obvious. Otherwise why would a fifty-year-old man, from the south, want to live for eight years in an anonymous hotel room in an anonymous town in the Italian part of Switzerland? Eight years without working. Apparently. Years of silence and cigarettes, years perched in the lobby or the hotel bar, elegantly dressed, but never allowing himself any luxuries. Awards: IFF Cannes - Palme d'Or (nomination)
