Megall Az Ido

Fortnight 1982, Feature film,


TIME STANDS STILL is an historic film about Hungary during the sixties. I tried to describe those years in the same way as I lived them. First of all, I wanted to show the dynamic force that characterized the most insignificant relationships, and the historic and social context in wich we lived them. The basis of my outlook on that period is my age, which is the same as the system in which I live. Peter GOTHAR
