2007, Zoltán Kamondi, Hungary, 122 min.
With Adriano Giannini, Piroska Molnár
Part frontier-town western and part post-apocalyptic fantasy, DOLINA is an intriguing genre hybrid. Conscripted laborers break rocks on the edge of town in view of the toxic waste dump while their overlords, the members of a quasi-religious sect whose odd garb includes a fake beard, supervise the local brothel and other important enterprises. Loner Gabriel shows up in search of his father’s bones and gets sidetracked by one of the foxier ladies for hire. In Hungarian with English subtitles. Preview courtesy of Bunyik Entertainment. 35mm.
