EXCLUSIVE: Trailer for György Pálfi's His Master's Voice
by David González
- The latest film from the Hungarian maverick, who previously directed Hukkle, Taxidermia and Free Fall, will world-premiere at Tokyo
Péter is in his late thirties when he thinks he recognises his father in a documentary on a mysterious accident. His father deserted communist Hungary in the 1970s, a criminal offence under that regime, and has not been heard from since. Péter travels to America and, after an eventful investigation, finds his father and his new family. The reunion offers them plenty of experiences and teaches several lessons to both father and son. Also, as a consequence, the world is informed that the mute universe has spoken and that we are not alone.
This is the synopsis of His Master's Voice [+see also:
