Angi Vera*

  • 1979 ----- color ----- 96 min ----- vhs
  • (Directed by Pal Gabor; with Veronika Papp, Erzsi Pasztor, Eva Szabo, Tamas Dunai, Laszlo Halasz, Laszlo Horvath) The year is 1948, a time of confusion and political re-organization in Eastern Europe. Vera Angi, a naive but earnest young woman, is enrolled in a Party school. She becomes infatuated with her group leader. They sleep together. And then . . . From the subject matter, one might expect a doctrinaire film, but instead one finds a delicate and ambivalent work. With precision and insight, Angi Vera expresses, rather than embodies, the confusion of the era in which it is set.
