Ravine crowned best Hungarian film of the year


– The feature film by Balázs Krasznahorkai wins the major title of the Hungarian Film Awards 2021

This article is available in French.

Handed out at the closing ceremony of the brand-new Hungarian Motion Picture Festival (see the news), the Hungarian Motion Picture Awards, given to the best Hungarian productions of the year, singled out Gully, the feature debut by Balázs Krasznahorkai, as the big winner. The story, written by the director himself, revolves around Hungarian obstetrician Bálint Grassai, who left his native village in Maramures, Romania, many years ago to attend medical school in Budapest. He also left behind a son whom he never met, the result of a short affair with a local woman. At Easter, when Bálint returns to bury his father, he is forced to decide the fate of his abandoned son. Simon is now a self-destructive and rebellious 17-year-old, beholden to local gang leader Dumitru. On the cusp of becoming a father again, Bálint is wrenched back into the stark and unforgiving world he left behind. Production duties on Gully were handled by Pipacs Film and AGA Media. Its international sales are handled by the Hungarian National Film Institute.

by Bence Gyöngyössy, while the equivalent female prize went to an actress in a TV movie: Ildikó Hámori for Pilate by Linda dombrovszky (who herself scooped the Best Director Award). It was a surprising mix of genres, which is perhaps the result of the limited number of films that were eligible, owing to the health crisis, or which may well foreshadow a future in which the blurred lines between film, TV and platforms will become even fuzzier.
