    The philosophy of wine

The philosophy of wine is a very special monologue. It is like a real pearl: crystal clear, noble, with a message, seriousness, but also playfulness. It is hard work to bring it up from the depths, just as in this text you have to go deep.

The author of the monologue, Béla Hamvas, is one of the most exciting Hungarian thinkers of the 20th century, who has had a truly difficult fate, yet he has never broken. His monologue is primarily about wine, its enjoyment, pleasure and cultural significance, but it is also about much more than that: about nation, faith, personal and social values, norms, in fact, about life as a whole. Hamvas's delicious text, interpreted by Attila Szatmári, is truly spice for the body and soul!

Director: János Zalán
