This playful, genre-bending black comedy takes place in a fictionalized 1970s Hungary and follows Liza, a bright young nurse who works in a small town sanatorium. She loves all things Japanese and studies the language with Marta, a patient who happened to be married to the ambassador of Japan. When she begins seeing an evil shape-shifting Japanese spirit known as a fox-fairy, a demon known to suck the souls of out men, she thinks maybe her bad luck with men might have something to do with it. Blending Japanese folklore with Amélie-inspired artistic direction, this dark fairytale delivers touches of whimsy and a large helping of Hungarian intensity and humor.
