Description:
From the director of Academy Award winning Son of Saul comes a lavish historical drama about the dawn of the 20th century.

1913, Budapest, in the heart of Europe. Young Irisz Leiter arrives in the Hungarian capital with high hopes to work as a milliner at the legendary hat store that belonged to her late parents. She is nonetheless sent away by the new owner, Oszkár Brill. While preparations are under way at the Leiter hat store to host guests of utmost importance, a man abruptly comes to Irisz, looking for a certain Kálmán Leiter. Refusing to leave the city, the young woman follows Kálmán's tracks, her only link to a lost past. Her quest brings her through the dark streets of Budapest, where only the Leiter hat store shines, into the turmoil of a civilisation on the eve of its downfall.

"This film is about a civilisation at its crossroads. In the heart of Europe, at the height of progress and technology, without being written in history, the personal story of a young woman becomes the reflection of the birth of the 20th century. The film follows from close range its main character, Irisz, allowing a very intimate approach to the drama. From the outset, I imagined this movie as a vehicle for plunging the viewer into a personal labyrinth of obstruction along the heroine's quest to find her brother and ultimately the meaning of the world she wants to discover." (László Nemes)
