Dusi and Jeno (Private Hungary 2)

1989, 45 min, color, sound

With his 8mm camera, a secret film diary was shot between 1936 and 1966 by Jeno, who might have been the best cameraman of our age, had he not worked in 1945 as the senior clerk of General Mortgage Credit Bank. His wife is not as keen on film shooting as on their dog: they love it like a child. The main actors are Dusi and Jeno. But something else also plays a role: the city itself, in snow, fog and rain, with photography of sensual accuracy. This film is a poem, which sets up a breathtaking memorial to the vanishing representatives of the middle class.
