Treasure City (2021)

  • Psychological, Drama
  • 1h 32m

In Treasure City Hungarian filmmaker Szabolcs Hajdu turns the spotlight on the city at night, and the interweaving stories of its inhabitants. With a brilliant, natural ensemble cast (including stand out performances from Lilla Sárosdi and Orsolya Török-Illyés), a pulsing, driving score by Freakin’ Disco, superb cinematography (with the camera gliding and swooping around the city) from Csaba Bántó, and assured direction from Hadju, Treasure City offers a valuable and gripping glimpse into a hidden world that reveals much about human nature, and the way we live now.

A subtle mix of nocturnal urban tales exploring the darker side of human relations, the film explores a web of family, sexual, political and romantic relationships where nothing’s quite what it seems. A disagreement in a florists’ spirals badly out of control; a family dinner deteriorates into acrimony; an anti-fascist demo raises tensions; a visit to an empty bar leads to an unexpected encounter - one event connects to another, people appear in one situation and reappear in another, and by the end, the lives of 22 people intersect in unpredictable ways, during 90-minutes of one magical night in the city they share.
