A daughter hates her mother's job as toilet attendant so much, she opens all the windows and doors when her mother arrives home. But when her mother gets on the verge of losing that job, too, things change completely.
The Hyderabad Film Club, in association with the Hungarian Information & Cultural Centre, New Delhi, is organising a Hungarian Film Festival, at Prasad Labs Preview Theatre, from 19th to 22nd April. Six Hungarian movies will be screened during this period.
Today the third day, Fresh Air, by Agnes Kocsis, is the second film to be screened, at 7:30pm. The film has Hegyi Izabella, Nyako Julia, Turoczi Anita and Kiss Zoltan playing the central characters.
Director Agnes Kocsis makes her feature film debut with Fresh Air, a poignant film about a troubled relationship between a mother and a daughter set against the background of contemporary life in Hungary. Both the mother, who is in her 40s and single, and daughter, who is studying fashion, are lonely but cannot admit that to each other. The mother, who works as a toilet attendant in the subway, secretly meets men through lonely hearts clubs and ads. The daughter, meanwhile, is ashamed of her mother’s job and opens all the windows and doors when her mother arrives home.
But when her mother seems on the verge of losing her job, the daughter steps in to help – and in so doing, comes to appreciate the sacrifices that her mother has made. The film won the Best First Film Award at the Hungarian Film Week, and Best Film at the Brussels International Film Festival.
