(Fotográfia). Photography is an unusual and unusually affecting merger of fascinating cinéma vérité footage and a thoughtful narrative structure (Variety). Pál Zolnay, who is also known as a distinguished documentary filmmaker, weaves documentary and fiction together in this striking work about truth and photographic illusion. Zolnay casts two actors as traveling photographers wandering the back roads of Hungary, taking pictures of people played by nonactors. The photographers find that people adopt poses that do not reflect who they really are. Beautifully photographed, Photography reveals Zolnays true affection for his real-life subjects and surpasses ones expectation that the film will be an intellectual Candid Camera. Photography provokes serious thought about the nature of self-delusion, while never forgetting that people are still the most extraordinarily entertaining subject available to any filmmaker (Variety).
