Oh boy and I thought my Event Horizon review will get me into trouble ... I watched this movie for the first time in 2006 at the International Film Festival in Berlin. Since this movie is 50 years old, it's clear that the pacing is slow. But that wasn't the main point that bothered me.
Because in general I also like slow paced films. It is just that the story as it was on screen didn't appeal to me. And that might only be me (I'm not here to offend any lover of this movie, especially as this was hailed by the critics in Cannes), because the movie itself is well executed. But I think there could be more here ... So if you like slow paced movies, which play in a village, where people live that might have more to them, than they initially show, than this might appeal to you (more than it did to me) (yes there is an underlying social commentary in there, but again it didn't leave me with an impression)

The father, above all preoccupied by work on the fields and prospective wealth, decides to give his daughter in marriage to an old but rich man with whom he does business. Land marries land, he says. This seems to be the unyielding rule of the Hungarian peasantry. But the young lover is ready to stand up to any challenge to keep Maris love.
