1980's Confidence was nominated for the Academy Award and Szabó won Berlin's Silver Bear for Best Director. In World War II-era Hungary, the resistance pairs two unrelated members to act as husband and wife in an effort to stay hidden in plain sight. Will they be able to maintain the illusion without giving in to their growing feelings for each other? 

Reviews

"Arguably the best film directed by the most popular of post '60s Hungarian filmmakers, Confidence is a taut tale."  
- J. Hoberman, Village Voice

"The central performances are flawless."  
- Time Out 
 
"Subtle, haunting imagery, fine acting and directorial concern make this almost Kafkaesque film an absorbing drama."
- Variety
