Éden

Eden

 
Éva lives cut off from the outside in her sterile apartment. She's allergic to just about everything. Her sole contact with the world is her brother, who brings her food and keeps her company. This situation changes when András enters her life – a psychiatrist who will advise her in a court case about whether Éva's condition is caused by pollution, or whether her mental state is so fragile that she herself is the cause of her allergies. Is she sick, or is the world making her sick? Ágnes Kocsis explores the ambiguity of modern world suspended between sustainability and emptiness. (International Film Festival Rotterdam)
