When a stylish young woman is found beaten to death in 1930’s Hungary, a hardened reporter seeks to uncover why nobody seems interested in solving the crime. As Hungary’s fascist-leaning government prepares to align with Hitler, the dashing journalist continues digging for answers in an atmosphere rife with anti-Semitism, political corruption, and betrayal. A stylistic thriller befitting of its title, Budapest Noir will keep you guessing until the end. (Adult content: sexual situations, nudity)
“With classical craftsmanship, Budapest Noir shines particularly brilliantly…” — Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa
