AFTER THE DAY BEFORE
(M?snap)

Year: 2004
Country: HUNGARY
Language: Hungarian
Run Time: 120 minutes

Cinephile alert: The dialogue recalls Beckett, the landscape invokes Tarkovsky, the pacing, Bresson, and the psychology, David Lynch. The director himself says the film summons feelings and images from "Bram Stoker?s Dracula" and Kubrick?s "The Shining." Shot in the rocky and lush countryside, AFTER THE DAY BEFORE is a not-so-simple murder mystery. The mystery begins as a man hitches a ride into the country, looking for property he has inherited. However, the townspeople are rude, or downright hostile. Several times he?s hit on the head with a rock. After a while, chronological time makes no sense; the day seems to stretch out and repeat itself. A young woman is found murdered, and the man is caught up in helping find the murderer. The camera creeps around in slow pans; a sense of foreboding oozes everywhere. Based on an experimental novel by B.S. Johnson, released as a book of unbound pages that could be read in any order.
