Bence, a young biologist, lives with his fiancée Janka in a small house by a quiet fishing pond, in the middle of nowhere, in the heart of the Hungarian plains. His job is to take care of the pond and study the local biosphere, particularly a special species of catfish. However, the uneventful life of the couple lived in harmony with the cyclical workings of nature suddenly changes forever when a dramatic accident occurs.
This slow-paced, beautifully filmed and strangely intense movie, with the impressive performance of Bogdan Dumitrache, the leading actor, tells the darkly gripping story of a love triangle, of letting-go of the past, of reconciliation with the present, and finding peace of mind. Spiral is a surprising and wonderfully accomplished feature film debut.
