1980's CONFIDENCE was nominated for an Academy Award and Hungarian master István Szabó won Berlin's Silver Bear for Best Director. In World War II-era Hungary, the resistance pairs two unrelated members to act as husband and wife in an effort to stay hidden in plain sight. Will they be able to maintain the illusion without giving in to their growing feelings for each other? Sparkling new 4K restoration by the Hungarian Film Fund.
"Arguably the best film directed by the most popular of post '60s Hungarian filmmakers, Confidence is a taut tale."
- J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"The central performances are flawless."
"Subtle, haunting imagery, fine acting and directorial concern make this almost Kafkaesque film an absorbing drama."
Directed by Istvan Szabo
