Book review: Anna BATORI, Space in Romanian and Hungarian Cinema
This review critiques Anna Batori’s Space in Romanian and Hungarian Cinema. The author of this innovative approach on two of the major Eastern European cinemas focuses on the functions of space and spatiality in the Romanian and Hungarian films from the socialist and the post-socialist period, continuing the concepts of space and visibility, as theorised by Henri Lefebvre. In her work, Batori describes and analyses the sense of enclosure that these cinemas favour, either vertical, in the communist buildings under Ceausescu, or horizontal, in the Hungarian Alföld.
Keywords: Anna Batori, Romanian Cinema, Hungarian Cinema, post-socialist, films, space
