From the pen famed Hungarian novelist Peter Eszterhazy comes this erotic tale of passion and
betrayal. Lili, a young gypsy girl, falls madly in love with a dashing salesman who introduces her
to life’s sensual pleasures. When Lili discovers he is engaged to another, her life begins to spiral
downward into unending sexual liaisons.

Eszterhazy wrote the novel under the pseudonym Lili Csokonai -the main character- so the story
unfolds through her eyes, like an autobiography. The film’s complex weaving of flashbacks and
memories perfectly captures Lili’s haunted perspective on her life as does Tibor Mathe’s
beautiful cinematography.
