Snail Fortress

  • Hungary
Audio Tracks 

Although getting forty, Terézke lives without a husband or child in a small village in Transylvania, famous for its snail fortress. Her parents, who she still lives with, treat her and Dezsoke - a divorced, lonely man whose love for Terézke is unreciprocated - as grownup children. This peculiar and grotesquely sad inner documentary is about childlike people growing old, about their world gradually shrinking around them and their small, fragile lives in a poor and harsh rural environment.
