Two introverted abattoir workers (Alexandra Borbély and Géza Morcsányi) find out, by chance, that they have the same dream each night.

As incredulity evolves into curiosity, they begin to accept and explore the occurrence – and bring their subconscious into the daylight.

On Body and Soul is an unusual love story, set against the backdrop of a bleak meat factory but also taking place in a magical, romantic dreamscape. Raw and exquisite.

Winner of the Golden Bear for Best Film at the Berlin Film Festival 2017.

'An elegant midsummer, end-century night's dream of a film, with an elusive, gossamer lightness’ – The Guardian
