Dusi & Jenő

Private Hungary 2

With his 8mm camera, a secret film diary was shot between 1936 and 1966 by Jenő, who could have perhaps been the one of the best cameraman of his age, had he not worked until 1945 as the senior officer of General Mortgage Credit Bank.


His wife Dusi is not as keen on film shooting as on their dachshund: she love it like as her child. The main actors of the Tabán spleen are Dusi and Jenő. But something else also plays the main role: the city itself, in snow, fog and rain, after the siege, with photography of sensual accuracy. A poetic film - accompanied by Szemző’s mesmerizing music suit - sets up a breathtaking memorial to the vanishing life style of the 1930’ Hungarian middle class.
