  • Attila Janisch – Árnyék a havon AKA Shadow on the Snow (1992)

    Quote:
    Story of a sin that looks like an accident in the beginning but in reality it’s an irrevocable and deadly act. Story of a relationship in which lies and love chains daughter to father, sinner to innocent. Story of a man whose fate suddenly starts to turn another way – and buries everything it finds beneath itself.

    “You never think about sin, but then you are standing in front of it and it touches you.” (Attila Janisch)Read More »
