Synopsis

2018 Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film and Winner of the 2017 Berlinale Golden Bear, On Body and Soul is about the unconventional romance between two co-workers who discover that each night they have exactly the same dreams.

Following an 18-year break in feature filmmaking, Ildikó Enyedi has returned with this visually ravishing love story. Endre is the director of a Budapest abattoir. Slightly grizzled, he seems to have lived an eventful life that has eventually come to a stage of solitude. When Maria begins working as a quality controller at his company, Endre is clearly attracted to her. Their interactions, however, are extremely awkward. By chance, the two discover that each night they share exactly the same beautiful dream of a pair of deer frolicking in the woods. Despite their incredulity, they feel compelled to attempt a romance to match their shared visions, but real life
proves more difficult. Enyedi contrasts idyllic dream sequences with gory images in the slaughterhouse, creating a compelling metaphor for the struggle for human connection. Spellbinding and mysterious, On Body and Soul touchingly shows love emerging out of the darkness.
