My 20th Century

In connection to the exhibition My Diary – Your News the Blinken Open Society Archives present Ildikó Enyedi’s Cannes award winning film. The screening will be followed by a discussion and Q & A with Ildikó Enyedi, director and scriptwriter.

On the last night of the 19th century, two ladies are travelling on Orient Express. Dóra, a high society swindler, sits in the 1st class compartment, while Lili, a committed anarchist, in a 3rd class one. They are twins, but don’t know each other as they got orphaned and separated decades ago. Z., a ‘run-away aristocrat’ falls in love with both of them, and composes ‘the ideal woman’ by forging the two into one.
dir.: Ildikó Enyedi / fiction film / Hungarian with English subtitles / 1989 / 99 min
