ON BODY AND SOUL represents a celebrated comeback to feature filmmaking for director Ildikó Enyedi whose debut film My Twentieth Century won the Caméra d’Or at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival with 1995 ‘s follow-up Magic Hunter (Main competition at Venice Film Festival) and 1999’s Simon the Magician (Special Jury Prize winner at Locarno) also receiving critical praise.
In ON BODY AND SOUL, two introverted people, both workers in a meat-processing plant, one a world-weary financial director, the other a strict quality controller, find out by chance that they share the same dream every night. They are puzzled, incredulous and frightened. As they begin to accept this strange coincidence, they try to recreate in broad daylight what happens in their shared subconscious.
