ENFF On Tour in Utrecht: Bad Poems

Tuesday 5 November | 19:00 hours | Louis Hartlooper Complex | Tolsteegbrug 1, 3511 ZN Utrecht

ENFF On Tour in Utrecht brings Bad Poems by Gabor Reisz. An amusing, full of fantasy and utterly unpredictable comedy, awarded at several festivals with both jury and audience awards! “Bad Poems tries to capture how you think, dream, imagine and remember”, says the director who is also the leading actor in this lucid film. The screening will be followed by Q&A with the director Gabor Reisz and special musical performance by the Balkan Vrouwenkoor Amsterdam. These passionate singers led by Julia Scepanovic are performing songs from the Balkans and East Europe since 2010. Come and join us for the great evening in Louis Hartlooper Complex.

Synopsis

33-year-old Tamas is heartbroken after his girlfriend Anna, who is on a scholarship in Paris, breaks up with him. While wallowing in self-pity, Tamas takes a trip down memory lane to figure out if love only exists when it’s practically gone. As he’s trying to pick up the pieces, he begins to realize what makes this current society so confused. An unique, charming and highly subjective view of Hungary’s present times.
