FULL SYNOPSIS

Love and heartbreak are not just for the young, as this Hungarian film shows. Nominated for the 1974 Academy Award for "Best Foreign Film," it tells the story of two sixtyish sisters. The younger sister, a singing teacher, has remained in Hungary, and the older one lives in West Germany. Despite many requests from her older sister, the teacher remains in Hungary at least partly due to her love for a retired opera singer. As letters pass between the two sisters, many flashbacks tell the story of their childhood. When the younger sister discovers that the opera singer has a new girlfriend, she takes drastic action to deal with her rejection. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
