In his latest film, director Gyula Nemes follows on from his previous visual study The Dike of Transience with a film of related theme and form. Again in raw black-and-white images, we encounter the distinctive figures inhabiting the houseboats close to Budapest’s Kopaszi dam. The fading melancholic ambience and the specific poetic quality of the location are intensified by the soundtrack performed by members of Dunakeszi Railway Band. Made during the years 1998 to 2007, the film eloquently illustrates the way in which this genius loci is irrevocably seeping away with the fated reconstruction of this part of Budapest.
