LILIOM

At the age of 27, Liliom decides to change course and to start living together with Julie, a young woman. With this he says goodbye to his fleeting, yet familiar artist life and ends up in a raw reality. The loved ones live in poverty and depend on gifts from distant relatives and friends. Liliom sees his life changing into a difficult struggle and soon he starts to demonize the world around him.

 

Magistrate to Liliom: “Why are you ashamed that you were loved?”

 

We dive into the grim imagination of a stubborn and violent man who apparently does not have the talent to live a good and happy life. A story about the ups and downs of an individual in a closed community where everyone is constantly on each other’s lips and privacy is unthinkable, where nothing is left untouched and moral condemnation is always lurking. A world in which there is no quiet empty space.
