Budapest Noir (2017)

  • JIFF, drama
  • 1h 35m

Based on the internationally best-selling novel by the same name, Budapest Noir reimagines the dark underbelly of pre-war 1936 Hungary. When an unnamed Jewish woman is found dead, hard-boiled rogue reporter Zsigmond calls upon a motley collection of characters to help him crack the case.

Drawing on the complexities of Hungarian life in pre-war Europe, and taking us from brothels to boxing rings and gangsters to politicians, Gardos brings Budapest to life in this classically-styled noir film.
