My Wife, My Woman, My Girl: four women and love

by 

- After men in his 2009 feature debut Intimate Headshot, Peter Szajki is now focusing on women’s feelings

My Wife, My Woman, My Girl: four women and love

Following his feature debut Intimate Headshot, a film that was awarded Best First Film at the Hungarian Film Week 2009, Peter Szajki is currently putting the final post-production touches to his second feature, My Wife, My Woman, My Girl (Nejem, nőm, csajom), due out in Hungarian cinemas this December. The cast is to feature among others Judit Schell (Just Sex and Nothing Else [+see also:

), Ági Gubik, Kátya Tompos, Rozi Lovas, Péter Rudolf, András Stohl, Patricia Kovács, Zoltán Schmied, and Béla Mészáros.

Written by the filmmaker and Adél Vörös, the screenplay recounts four love stories through the eyes of four women, in a mirror plot to that of Intimate Headshot, a film that narrated four amorous misadventures through the eyes of four men.

Produced by Monika Mécs and Ági Pataki for M&M Film and by Gábor Kovács and Ernő Mesterházy for Partnerfilms, My Wife, My Woman, My Girl has the talented Péter Szatmári (Womb [+see also:

) as its director of photography.

Peter Szajki’s film will be a welcome release in Hungary, where the distribution of Hungarian productions is still very limited because of a blatant lack of films. The relaunch of public funding during the first half of 2012 (after the black hole of previous years) is indeed still too recent for it to have translated into a sufficient number of national features ready to take on the public. Recently, only Krisztina Deak’s Aglaja was released in cinemas (Ristretto Distribution on October 11), and American productions have dominated the box office despite the good performance of Belgian director Ben Stassen’s animation film Sammy 2.

But a European wind is blowing in Hungary at the moment, as October 11 saw the release of French blockbuster Taken 2, Danish director Nikolaj Arcel’s A Royal Affair [+see also:
