Catsplay (Cat’s Play) (Macskajatek)


(out of 5)

Karoly Makk follows the film Love with a sequel of sorts, catching up with two sisters who spend the film reflecting on past lives and romances. Most of it is told in voice-over narration with images and scenes of youth interspersed, jarringly, in a manner that feels far too loose and aimless to be poetic or effective. It is wholly possible that it was delicate and charming in 1974, but the film has not aged well and now creaks quite a bit, its characters not particularly interesting and its sense of romance too dampened by overzealous editing.
