From rebel to rebellion

Kamyar Mohsenin

A subtle look into a world where the silence causes violence, SUNSET depicts how an ill society awaits unrest and conflict to enter a new era. Not in the way that WHITE RIBBON indicated a small part of the world which is ready to enter the First World War, but in a glamorous way to show the bright façade and then travel to every corner of a social structure falling into the abyss of decay and decadency. When a girl comes back to the city to work in the hat store her family lost, she is led to a labyrinth of corruption and exploitation to find a trace of her missing brother. In SUNSET, László Nemes gives up the hysteric, handheld camera to create a stylized visual wonder. Following the leading character with smooth camera movements, Nemes fills the film with mind blowing compositions in the landscapes and the portraits. Indeed SUNSET is a visual ballet of the images gradually moving from repression to rebellion.
