Synopsis:
Ildiko Enyedi's acclaimed film tells the tale of identical twins Dora (Dorota Segda) and Lili (also Dorota Segda), born in Budapest at the very moment that Edison's wondrous electric light-bulb is unveiled to the world. Separated in childhood, the sisters' lives follow radically different paths, until New Year's Eve 1899, when they meet again on the Orient Express...This dazzling film portrays the birth of modernism, a daring world of revolutionary ideas and inventions that promised enchantment and inspired wonder. Shot in luminous monochrome, the film echoes the magic and exuberance of early cinema.
Celebrating the enthralling technological marvels as well as the political and sexual upheavals of the time, this film reclaims the birth of the twentieth century as a miraculous moment to be alive.
