And here's what not to do if you die.
The Hyderabad Film Club, in association with the Hungarian Information & Cultural Centre, New Delhi, is organising the Hungarian Film Festival, at the Prasad Labs Preview Theatre, from 19th to 22nd April. Six Hungarian movies will be screened during this period.
Today the fourth and last day, The Prince's Respite, by Peter Timar, will be the first film to be screened, at 6:00pm. The film has Sazabo Gabi, Gaqspar Tibor, Laszlo Zsolt and Pogany Judit playing the central characters.
The Prince's Respite is about disjointed time. Alia, a model of about 40, is shot at by a mugger, but before the bullet penetrates her heart, something unexpected happens. The Prince of Hell appears before her offering her the chance to get her life back for one minute. He says that if Alida can persuade anyone within that minute to die in her place, her life will be spared.
At first Alida does not understand what kind of minute the prince is talking about but then she faces the impossible. One single minute is repeated over and over again. When it is over everything and everybody jumps back to where they were at the beginning of the minute.
In the meantime Alida lives through time continuously. Her attempts to talk to people, look up her friends and parents, fail since she cannot tell anyone her request, and she has to start telling them her story over and over. In terror, she comes to the realization that she cannot get anyone to give their life for her. She gives up the fight and accepts her fate. But then suddenly someone comes to help her.
