Tímár films in the CineClassics progrtam
The talented special effects artist directed fantastic comedies depicting the Kádár Era in Hungary, with eerie clarity, fluency, playfulness, style and accuracy. He has proven his extraordinary skills first as Gábor Bódy’s editor. Tímár’s first feature film Sound Eroticism (1986) and later on the Dollybirds (1997) offer a painfully entertaining picture of the Kádár Era, while the Moziklip of 1987 is more like a taste of life in Hungary with songs by Kentaur, Sziámi, the Napoleon Boulevard and László Komár. It is a game of languages, lights, pictures, and the film as raw material. Including yoghurt, naked women, backslides, playing in the woods, romance in the lake and the love of life, thousands know and love Tímár’s pictures, special effects and bittersweet stories.
