Winner – San Sebastian Film Festival & Paris Film Festival
Wildly original and defying genre categorization, HUKKLE is virtually wordless but teeming with nature’s sounds. We spend an observant, introspective time in a Hungarian hamlet where nothing much seems to happen – oh, except there’s a policeman investigating a suspicious death. And there are hiccups. A quirky, quiet, stylish little film with a most inventive way to tell a story.
“It’s a novelty – and an educational one at that.” – Orlando Sentinel
