Critic Reviews for On Body and Soul (A Teströl és Lélekröl)

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (4)

It's a slow, quiet and beautifully composed story about human connection, or more specifically, the difficulty in finding it.

Top Critic

Morcsányi endows his character with the sad, lived-in expression of a man resigned to his drab routine, but it's breakout talent Borbély who truly emerges as the movie's star.

Top Critic

A rich and strange tale of thwarted sexuality that takes a tad too long to get to the point.

February 10, 2017 | Full Review…

A determinedly eccentric but intermittently startling misfit romance that marks a singular return to feature filmmaking for Hungarian writer-director Ildikó Enyedi after an 18-year gap.

Top Critic

The combination of brutalism, magic, and kitsch just results in what you'd expect: a pool of blood, milk, and melted popsicle in a gooey mess on the concrete floor.

As the film proceeds, Ildikó Enyedi incessantly explicates the subtext of the characters' developing connection.

½

With an exquisite direction, impeccable performances and an absolutely wonderful screenplay, this profoundly sensitive and unconventional love story uses a lot of humor to depict in a most irresistible way the discovery of love by two lonely, introspective people.
