A Long Weekend in Pest and Buda reunites Károly Makk with Mari Törõcsik and Iván Darvas, who starred in his classic film Love which was made over 30 years ago. With them, Makk recreates that finely tuned sense of place, history, and intimate human stories that characterize his best films, showing a director still working at the height of his talent.

Emotionally mature and profoundly moving, the film reveals how, despite our best efforts, we can never quite escape the past.
