Pleasant Days

Hungary, 2002, 103 min, color

Newly released from prison, Peter goes to stay with his sister, Maria. Their relationship is an unusual one, and so discomfortingly intimate that the viewer is never quite certain whether their bond might perhaps be incestuous. While Peter tries to regain his place in the world, his sister is preoccupied with the problems of her best friend, Maja, who has given birth on the floor of the laundry in which the two women work. Maria has agreed to take care of the baby and to pretend to be its mother, hoping in this way to blackmail her own, neglectful lover into a more permanent relationship. Peter is the only one who knows the truth and he is falling for Maja
