Movie Info

The Hungarian Forbidden Relations is a shockingly straightforward treatise on the subject of incest. A woman's (Lili Monori) love for her brother (Miklos B. Szekely) goes far beyond filial devotion. His feelings for her are likewise intense. The problem goes beyond conventional morality: incest is illegal in communist Hungary, and as a result both brother and sister are thrown into prison. American audiences weren't always certain whether Forbidden Relations was simply a paean to individual freedom or an advocacy of impure love. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

'Rather than allowing us to digest the story as it actually happened, the filmmakers seem to be deadset on making sure we reach the same conclusions as they did.'
