Szerelmesfilm (1970)

I guess what first attracted me to this film was the cover and title— and fortunately, the movie was every bit as dear. It stars the handsome András Báli and entertaining actress Judit Halász, who portrays a trendy mod fashion designer. (In reality, she later became a Hungarian pop superstar.) But beyond the superficial, Szabó paints a rather moving political allegory.

István Szabó made a number of other great films, including "Father," "Taking Sides," and "Being Julia."
