Utilizing a fascinating formal conceit, the Hungarian psychodrama DOWN BY LOVE (SZERELEMTOL SUJTVA) is anchored by a remarkable performance from actress Patricia Kovacs. Necessarily so, because Kovacs is virtually the only actor on-screen in the film, which also takes place entirely within the four walls of one apartment. Obviously inspired in part by Polanski's REPULSION, DOWN BY LOVE tracks Eva's (Kovacs) slow mental breakdown as she reconsiders her long relationship with lover and foster father Tibor. Eva begins to realize, perhaps for the final time, that Tibor will never ask his wife for a divorce, and that he considers Eva no more than a plaything. The insight begins to cause her to unravel, possibly with tragic consequences.
