Regarded as one of the great 'lost' masterpieces of international cinema, Zoltán Huszárik's 1971 film is finally availabe for the first time on DVD. A surreal and highly stylized adaptation of the early 20th century writings of author Gyula Krúdy, the film depicts the life, loves and memories of traveller and womanizer Szindbád (played by the great Hungarian actor Zoltán Latinovits), as he contemplates his life of hedonism and impropriety and who tries to recover his great lost love before he dies. Evoking time and memory to extraordinary effect, Szindbád is a filmic elegy that is both lyrical and surreal - an experience unlike anything in modern cinema.
