Maine Jewish Film Festival sneak preview screening!

Saturday and Sunday
at 10:00 a.m.

Based on Vilmos Kondor’s best-selling crime novel, Éva Gárdos’ BUDAPEST NOIR is set in 1936. The prime minister returns to Budapest from Germany in a coffin, his dream of a fascist state snuffed out — for now. Cynical reporter Zsigmond Gordon has other concerns. A tip leads to a curious scene — a beautiful young woman lies dead, a Jewish prayer book in her purse. Investigating the mystery girl’s murder, Gordon finds pornographers, brothels and Communists leading to the highest echelons of power. Despite efforts to scare him, he digs deeper, not knowing who to trust or what ulterior motives are at play. (In Hungarian with English subtitles, 95 min.)

Screened as part of our Cinema Explorations winter film series. Complimentary bagels provided by Bagel Mainea!
