DirectorCast

Ildikó EnyediDorotha Segda, Oleg Yankovsky, Péter Andoral

Hungary/West Germany / 1989 / 101 minutes / DCP / B&W

It’s 1880, and as Thomas Edison invented the electric light bulb, a pair of twin sisters are born to the world. Orphaned and separated, their lives take different paths: Dora flourishes exploiting capitalism with her beauty, whereas Lili engages with revolution. Fate sees them reunited in the orbit of a man with whom they have both fallen in love. Berlinale Golden Bear winner Ildikó Enyedi of On Body and Soul (41st) shows her auteurist vision in this debut feature, which won the Cannes Camera d’Or. Shot in luminous black and white, this fantastically ambitious film, through the twin’s split personalities, reflects the great historical events which shaped the technological development and confusion of an era.
