Restorations Tuesdays: My 20th Century

Directed by Ildiko Enyedi
1989, Hungary, 104 min
Hungarian with English subtitles

New 4K restoration by the Hungarian Filmlab, courtesy of Kino Lorber. Ildikó Enyedi’s fairytale-like film spins the tale of twins, Dóra and Lili, born in Budapest at the very moment that Edison’s electric light-bulb is unveiled.  Separated in childhood, the sisters follow radically different paths: one becomes a naïvely idealistic, bomb-toting anarchist, the other a pampered, hedonistic courtesan – until they meet again on the Orient Express on New Year’s Eve  1899…

Restoration Tuesdays: our new ongoing series of newly restored films is generously sponsored by IATSE 856. All admissions to these screenings is $5. 

Reviews

Enyedi’s deliciously intoxicating sensual concoction trips lightly but engagingly over one of the most fascinating and transformative periods in world history – the dawn of the 20th century, seen from the intriguing feminist perspective of two Eastern Europeans, identical twins Dora and Lili...Imaginative and endlessly fascinating to watch this was an extraordinary debut that won Enyedi the Camera D’Or at Cannes in 1989.
