From the Oscar winning director of MEPHISTO, Istvan Szabo's SWEET EMMA, DEAR BOBE has been described as "an intimate, deeply moving, and extremely penetrating film about contemporary Hungary as it struggles to escape the legacy of 50 years of communist rule. Emma and Bobe are two young women who have fled the countryside in search of a better life in Budapest. Trained as Russian teachers, a skill which is now next to useless, the two women find that the path to 'living well' involves humiliation, rejection, and exploitation. The intertwined story of Emma and Bobe is told with simple grandeur, elevating their of survival into a cautionary tale of deep compassion." (Piers Handling, Toronto International Film Festival)
