All About the Levkoviches

Dir. Ádám Breier
85 min

A bittersweet dramedy set in contemporary Budapest about grief, family and the fact that everyone needs to be right, Ádám Breier’s first feature tells the story of a generous but stubborn boxing coach, Tamás (Tamás Szabó Kimmel), who gets along well with everyone except for his own son Iván. They have not spoken since Iván moved to Israel, became religious, and joined an orthodox Jewish community. When Tamás’s beloved wife dies unexpectedly, his son comes home with his never-seen grandson, Ariel, to sit shiva at their home, despite resistance from Tamás. As father and son grit their teeth and try to make nice during the one-week mourning process, it’s clear that they must confront and come to terms with old grievances. Meanwhile, to Iván’s consternation, young Ariel starts to fall in love with his grandfather and the noble art of boxing. Supported by the Hungarian National Film Institute’s Incubator Program. –Alissa Simon
