Filmspotting: Exploring the Deutsche Kinemathek’s Film Archive

BRIGITTA, 1994

On this journey through the Hungarian Puszta, a young painter meets a mysterious woman on a horse. She seems to be mysteriously connected to Major Murai, a friend of the painter’s at whose estate he’s staying. While he wanders through nature, he doesn’t just get to know the country and its people, but also gradually learns the story of Brigitta and the Major, a story of damaged love, separation, and coming together again. BRIGITTA (Dagmar Knöpfel, Germany 1994), the adaptation of a novel by Adalbert Stifter, offers fantastic black and white images, which capture the wide landscape, the faces of the locals, and the calm atmosphere of the literary source in appropriate fashion. BRIGITTA has recently been added to the distribution range as a digital print. (ah) (28.5.)
