The freshness of childhood, the complicity of two little girls, the nature bubble, and the hectic days of grown-ups. Life happens on the other side of the borderlines and as difficult as it may seem, people keep going, with an instinctive inner lightness that keeps them moving forward, giggling, challenging their own sadness, always looking for a sign, a hint, a wink of belonging. Don’t we all belong to a kind of group, family, or larger nutshell? At the end of the day, aren’t we all humans?
Was this film an inspiration of your own life?
Definitely. The film reflects my own life emotions and a specific time in our lives where we moved to a small village in Hungary during the war.
What is so special about it?
I would say that people talk about war and refugees. This film talks about the shelter itself.
What’s the film’s main message?
I think it’s the contrast between the lightness of the absurdity of life and the event itself; the war was still going on.
