On Body And Soul (2017)

Ildikó Enyedi directs Géza Morcsányi, Alexandra Borbély and Réka Tenki in this Hungarian arthouse romance about two quiet slaughterhouse workers who discover they share the same dream.

Lonely people. Boredom. Flashes of cold brutality. Subtle acting and a passive element of mystery keeps this watchable. It will not be for everyone but it is directed with such unwavering vision that you do feel like you have watched a movie afterwards. Frustrating but admirable.
