The clash of sexuality and politics provide the basis for this tragic love story set in Hungary, 1958. In the offices of magazine The Truth, two female journalists tentatively embark on a clandestine, highly-charged affair, knowing that they face the wrath of the Stalinist regime if discovered. A brave and significant portrait of the effect totalitarianism has on the most intimate aspects of life, this film cleverly under-cuts the expectations aroused by its milieu.
This is disjointed, poorly acted and unemotional. The cinematography and editing is amateur. It is difficult to feel any involvement with any of the characters who are all wooden beyond belief. Plenty of historical-political references without helping the viewer to understand the meaning or significance of them. Dreary.
