Márta Mészáros – Örökbefogadás AKA Adoption (1975)

Márta Mészáros is without doubt one of the most significant female directors from Central Europe. Her outspoken works deal frankly with issues of gender, politics and society.

Adoption is a story of the hushed rebellion of two strong women, fortysomething Kata and orphaned teenager Anna. Kata longs to have a child of her own, but rejected by her married lover, Kata looks into adoption. She befriends troubled teen Anna, also determined to start a new life for herself, and the two women soon form a strong and unexpected kinship.

The first female director to win the Golden Bear at the Berlinale, Mészáros’ film is without any hint of artifice; no grand occurrences, no heavyweight discussions of issues, a film quiet and truthful in the best way.
