(p.41) Chapter Four The ‘Budapest’ Films:
The Cinema of István Szabó

John Cunningham

Columbia University Press

This chapter focuses on Hungarian director István Szabó's so-called “Budapest” films: Budapest, Why I Love It (Budapest, amiért szeretem); 25 Fireman's Street (Tűzoltó utca 25); Budapest Tales (Budapesti mesék); City Map (Városterkép); and Confidence (Bizalom). These films are of particular interest because of their almost relentless exploration of Budapest-based themes as well as their sheer enjoyment of the sights, sounds, and geography of this Hungarian capital. In this respect they are some of the most personal of Szabó's films.

Keywords:   Budapest, 25 Fireman's Street, Budapest Tales, City Map, Confidence, geography, Hungary
