Down By Love Review


Extraordinary
She's a 24 year old single woman who seduced or was seduced by her foster father when she was 13, following the death of her parents. However the pair came together, Éva (brilliant and winsome Patricia Kovács) has become mentally addicted to 43 year old Tibor (Gábor Máté) to such an extent that she conjures scenes with him in her apartment when he's not there. She berates him for not leaving his wife, Éva's former foster mother Klára (Rita Tallós). She prepares lavish meals by candlelight for the non-present lover. She coos coyly, makes demands, raves, instructs, and succumbs to her images as night turns into day and Monday lapses into Tuesday.

As she verbalizes her thoughts in a fantasy monologue as though talking to someone in the room, or in audible memory flashbacks, we learn that Klára had sent her out of her house and into a convent in an effort to save her marriage when she discovered the illicit affair. Tibor, for his part, recognizes the immorality, if not the illegality, of his acts but continues his secret relationship with the comely girl who is his virtual love slave. He gives her money for partial support which, combined with her earnings as an animation cartoonist, allows her considerable freedom to live alone in the apartment she inherited from her parents and plenty of time to dwell on her obsession.
