Saturday Matinee: Hukkle

“Hukkle” (2002) is an experimental independent Hungarian film directed by György Pálfi and loosely based on an actual event. With nearly no dialogue, the film depicts seemingly mundane and disconnected scenes which gradually form a narrative related to a folksong sung at the end which includes the following lyrics which, translated into English, goes something like: “Who doesn’t love her husband cook him mandrake put paprika on it too he will be done by 8 o’clock. Who still loves her husband cook him good dinner… I will go to a place where birds don’t fly. I am alone like the crane like someone without a patron. My life is sad, my day is sorrow. I live under a sad star.”
