A girl refuses rescue after a town is drowned by a storm, in this distinctive animation based on a story from Transylvanian-Hungarian author Ádám Bodor. A knowledge of Hungarian folklore would probably illuminate all kinds of allegory here, but the girl’s adamant refusal of help from a determined hero and three selfish nuns is intriguingly enigmatic. The bold animation style uses camera focus to heighten the physical and emotional effect of the storm.
