A brilliant film debut, and one of the most highly acclaimed European films of the seventies, this deceptively simple black and white feature anticipates and stylistically surpasses Jim Jarmusch’s Stranger than Paradise. The events of the film are concentrated on a single day. The film focuses on Laszlo, a 20-year-old driver’s assistant, who spends his day and his money—which he has just stolen—in the aimlessness of everyday life. —hungariant
