Hungarian writer-director Ildiko Enyedi (‘My Twentieth Century’) delivers a love story that unfolds both in dreams and an outer world of ostensible normality. An Hungarian abattoir provides the backdrop for an affair between two workers who share the same nightly dream that they are deer wandering a snowy forest. They discover their dreams are shared through Ildikó’s comically preposterous plot mechanism whereby someone in the slaughterhouse has been stealing a special Viagra powder for cattle so each employee must be interrogated by a police psychologist.
