Screening of György Pálfi's Final Cut - Ladies and Gentlemen

A unique collage film - "Final Cut" is entirely composed of scenes from the greatest movies ever made. Spending over three years in the editing room, the Hungarian György Pálfi created this extraordinary film by culling scenes from over 450 international films and assembling them into a kind of ramshackle narrative. Characters - "the woman" and "the man" are born, grow up, fall in love, marry, and move into domestic life: Alain Delon exchanges glances with Marilyn Monroe, while Jackie Chan springs to the rescue of Jeanne Moreau. Pálfi, director of such eccentric gems as Hukkle and Taxidermia, offers a history of the world as told by the movies.
