Nárcisz és Psyché

Narcissus and Psyche is a 1980 Hungarian drama film directed by Gábor Bódy starring Patricia Adriani & Udo Kier.

Based on Sándor Weöres’s epic poem, the film is a fantastic vision, a visual time travel, the encyclopaedic debut film of the postmodern era. Gábor Bódy connected the love of Erzsébet Lónyay, a gipsy countess of the 18th century, and László Ungvárnémeti Tóth, an ill-fated playwright, with the story of baron Zedlitz, the fantast.

Behind this love triangle, he unfolds the intellectual history of a century and a half, from the Enlightenment to the nineteen-twenties.
