Riddance

A thoughtful, observational drama about a young woman’s fight to retain her integrity despite falling in love.

Drama 1973 81 mins Not rated

Director: Márta Mészáros

Overview

Jutka is an independent young textile worker – free, but mindful of social prejudice. When she falls in love with a university student she faces a test of honesty. Informed by her experiences researching a documentary, Mészáros examines youthful identity and integrity. The beautifully observational camerawork from Lajos Koltai is often in close-up, but never with judgement.

The presentation on BFI Player marks the digital World Premiere of a new restoration by the National Film Institute Hungary – Film Archive.
