Movie: On Body and Soul
This Hungarian film is an unconventional romance about misfit coworkers at a slaughterhouse who realize they are sharing dreams in which they are deer. It's both disturbing and enchanting; I was skeptical based on the description but wound up being totally drawn in. It's bloody and WEIRD and funny and sort of heartwarming, all at once; the characters are very distinctive and allowed to just be themselves without too much explanation.
Availability: Streaming on Netflix.
Foreign Language Film: Sure. This was fascinating.
