Johanna

29 Sep 200612 Oct 2006

A remarkable new work from young Hungarian director Kornel Mundruczo. This time, the 31-year-old filmmaker tests the limits of his ambition with an opera film. Mundruczo's collaborative star Orsi Toth plays Joan, a young drug addict who falls into a coma after a traffic accident, only to awaken in the hospital with the new-found power to heal the sick. An unlikely but suitably otherworldly angel, Joan becomes a nurse at the hospital but soon finds herself persecuted by resentful fellow staff. Produced by Bela Tarr and with echoes of Lars Von Trier, Mundruczo's film is daring and sublime; it has a spirit moving through it which will also stir a receptive audience.
