Pleasant Days Film Poster


Kornel Mundruczo's second feature uses improvisatory techniques and memorable imagery to tell the story of Peter (Tamas Polgar), a young man just out of prison and unimpressed with the outside world. He moves in with his sister, Maria (Kata Weber), with whom he shares what seems like an incestuously close relationship. When he witnesses a woman secretly giving birth on the floor of a laundrette, it sets in motion a tricky emotional triangle composed of himself, Maria and the child's mother, Maja (Orsolya Toth). As Peter grows more involved in Maja's life, he's forced to choose where his true loyalties lie, with tragic consequences.
