Movie Info

There is something dark and mysterious occurring in a small Hungarian village, but exactly what that is remains a secret, barely perceptible among the rhythms of everyday life. A youth drives the milk cart and spies a young woman sunbathing. An old woman plows her field, and a farmer's sow is fertilized. But there is also a strange ritual that involves the villagers and the mailman, who presents items to every new widow when her husband dies -- something that happens with regular frequency.

Critic Reviews for Hukkle

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (16) | Fresh (33)

  • Told almost entirely without words and composed largely of detail shots, this doesn't quite transcend the gimmickry of its concept, but it succeeds as a bravura technical exercise with some truly amazing images.

  • It's a novelty, and an educational one at that. It reminds you of just how dumb your average movie is these days.

    April 29, 2005 | Rating: 3/5
  • Unclassifiable and wildly original.

    August 13, 2004 | Rating: 3/4
  • So precisely and hypnotically assembled it could have been directed by a particularly whimsical metronome.

  • What film is all about, but all too often isn't -- it challenges its audience to look at the world in a different way.

    March 26, 2004 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • At once impressive and indulgent, hypnotic and patience-inducing with its languorous rhythms.

    Mostly, this is a film about liquids being poured. Sheer torture.

    In the beginning, there was the hiccup... That is a very small disruption to the natural order in "Hukkle" in a small farming village where there is a long standing relationship between the humans who work hard for what they have and the animals which they care for and occasionally become lunch. The largest disruption is also the money shot of the film. Aside from that, the film is pretty much minimalist in observing the day-to-day details except for one sequence that cuts from a man eating to an-x-ray of him to a doctor's office.

    A very intriguing and interesting bit of film making. It is a murder mystery but one that is told in an indirect manner and one that involves putting the pieces together through observation of life in a Hungarian village. Very unique.
