Jupiter's Moon

Directed by Kornél Mundruczó

Hungary-Germany-France | 129 minutes | 2018

Hungarian with English subtitles

Stepping over and through genres in giant leaps and inspiring wonder, the transcendent new film by Kornél Mundruczó (White God, winner of the Cannes Film Festival Un Certain Regard Award) details the story of a refugee who discovers he can fly. This ability is not only explored literally, with some of the most astonishing visuals to appear onscreen this year but also metaphorically, as he is identified and exploited as a person to fear and possibly destroy. An overworked Jewish doctor takes him under his care and guides him through a city divided by both corruption and a changing political landscape. Unbeknownst to them, their friendship will alter the entire world. This magic-realist action-packed tale audaciously combines the fantastic and the distressingly relevant, creating a stunning and uniquely cinematic adventure. Winner of the Best Film Award at SITGES and Best Director Award at Fantastic Fest.
