Alchemist and the Virgin, The

Az Alkimista es a szu

In Zoltan Kamondi’s striking and decidedly bizarre film, the alchemist (a university professor who’s trying to make gold out of plastic) and the virgin are two corners of a love triangle which also includes the girl’s boyfriend. Alchemy is used as a metaphor (representing the transforming powers of love and greed) throughout the film, which Kamondi mounts as a grotesque philosophical adventure yarn.
