DIRECTED BY GÁBOR REISZ
PRODUCED BY JULI BERKES / PROTON CINEMA & LES FILMS DU BALIBARI
33-year-old Tamás Merthner is heartbroken after his girlfriend Anna, who is on a scholarship in Paris, breaks up with him. While wallowing in self-pity, Tamás takes a trip down memory lane to figure out if love only exists when it’s practically gone. As he’s trying to pick up the pieces, he begins to realise what makes this current society so confused, which gives us a highly subjective view of Hungary’s present.

„A lump inside me wanted to escape” – interview with Gábor Reisz
Four years after For Some Inexplicable Reason, Gábor Reisz has come out with a new film premiering at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival on November 23rd. Bad Poems is more experimenting and hits an even more personal tone than his cult debut feature and captures just as much the essence of his generation. Besides writing and directing, Reisz had also taken on the lead role in his new movie. We sat down to talk about the issues of his generation, childhood dreams and lavender fields planted in a flat.
