Ice Cream Could Be Dangerous for Natasa Stork
- The actress tops the bill playing twins in Fanni Szilagyi’s feature debut, which is currently in post-production; the Partnersfilm production is being sold by NFI World Sales
Having previously turned heads with her short film End of Puberty, Fanni Szilagyi is presently fine-tuning the post-production of her feature debut, Ice Cream Could Be Dangerous (Veszélyes lehet a fagyi). Topping the bill is Natasa Stork (giving an exceptional turn in Preparations to Be Together for an Unknown Period of Time [+see also:

The story, written by Zsófi Lányi, revolves around thirtysomething identical twins Éva and Adél. They are very distant and different from one another, but they lead equally hypocritical lifestyles and need to face up to reality when they fall in love with the same guy, who is everything they are not: radically open, direct and naive. They end up in a bizarre, unfulfilled love affair, which contributes to making both of their lives a little less miserable.
Produced by Ági Pataki and Edina Kenesei for Partnersfilm, Ice Cream Could Be Dangerous is being co-produced by VisionTeam and secured backing from the National Film Institute’s Incubator programme. Principal photography, which lasted 24 days, took place in Budapest over two shooting sessions, during last summer and last autumn, with Gábor Szilágyi serving as DoP. The international sales are handled by NFI World Sales.
As a reminder, Partnersfilm has the recent titles As Far as I Know [+see also:
