Sunset, directed by László Nemes (Son of Saul) is set in Budapest before World War and stars newcomer Juli Jakab. The story tells of a stubborn young woman's search for her lost brother in 1913 Budapest and is strangely gripping for much of its length, even as the search turns in on itself and evaporates. The breathlessly subjective camera, hovering close to the face of the main character, or following close behind, is carried over wholesale from Son of Saul.
It's a film dripping with brooding atmosphere that fashions drama out of locations as much as plot or character.
