On Body And Soul

A most unusual love story: primarily set in a Hungarian abattoir, two employees meet and discover that each night they share a common dream embodying wild deer and foraging for leaves in the winter forest. She a doe and he a stag, their noses touch while drinking water from the same stream. Their romantic non-human connection is in stark contrast to the harsh and awkward realities of their flawed human encounters, made particularly challenging by the woman’s autistic behaviours. What unfolds is a captivating, amusing and poignant tale of love and acceptance. Winner of the Berlinale Golden Bear and Best Film at Sydney Film Festival.
