The bucolic, even-paced, daily life of a small Hungarian village is the setting for the experimental film HUKKLE (onomatopoeic for hiccup in Hungarian). A series of dialogue-less vignettes, featuring the various townspeople and their animals, explore the quotidian existence in the Hungarian countryside. Unifying these sequences is a subtle plot thread about a murder and its investigation, which seems merely incidental when weighed against the numerous, quiet incidents on display. The ultimate result is a lyrical, sometimes puzzling film that is open to as many interpretations as it has episodes. HUKKLE was praised at numerous European film festivals, winning awards as it collected accolades.
