Fresh Air

A deep breath of Kaurismäkian deadpan, Fresh Air measures the deceptively wide emotional chasm between a neat-freak workaholic who cleans subway toilets and her quietly defiant daughter with ambitions to design clothing, who is more like her mother than either of them can imagine. Certainly the quietest major film on display at the 37th Hungarian Film Week, this confident feature from 35-year-old Ágnes Kocsis earned her the Sandor Simo prize for best first film.
