Preparations to Be Together for an Unknown Period of Time

A woman, brimming with love, travels to the man she will start a new life with. But he reacts by saying “I don’t know you”. Premiered at the prestigious Venice Film Festival, this intriguing psychological thriller with a brilliant leading actress got awarded at many international festivals for the best direction, best film and best acting.

Marta, a 40-year-old neurosurgeon, falls in love with Janos, the doctor she met at an oncology conference in New Jersey. She leaves her shining American career behind and returns to Budapest to start a new life with the man she loves. She waits for him at the Liberty Bridge in vain, but he does not appear at their meeting point. Marta starts to search for him desperately, but when she finally finds him, the love of her life claims that they have never met before. The leading role is brilliantly played by Natasa Stork who got promoted to European shooting star 2021 at Berlinale.
