THE ANNUNCIATION (Angyali üdvözlet) (1984) * with switchable English subtitles *

Péter Bocsor as Adam Júlia Mérő as Eve Eszter Gyalog as Lucifer György Belme Róbert Borók Attila Dobay Evelin Fehér

Performed entirely by children, The Annunciation is a rather brutal interpretation of sacred and secular history. When Adam and Eve, having succumbed to Lucifer's temptation, are cast out of the Garden of Eden, Adam holds Lucifer to his promise, reminding him that "You said, I would know everything!". So Lucifer grants Adam a dream of the world to come. In the dream, Adam becomes Djoser in Egypt; Miltiades in Athens; a wealthy Roman during the time of Jesus Christ; a knight called Tancred in Byzantium; Johannes Kepler in Prague; Danton in revolutionary Paris; and a nameless suitor in Victorian London. Guided by a deceptively sweet, but ultimately contemptuous Lucifer, Adam confronts an endless procession of the horror of the human story involving rape, betrayal, savagery, mindless cruelty and fanaticism.

DVD-R is in Hungarian with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 99 mins.  See film samples for sound and video quality!
