“The Door is a special work, which is about both faith and the lack of it. Besides the deep-rooted issues of Hungarian history, the film also tackles universal human problems. At first sight the film seems to be is about the encounter and the evolving relationship of two strong characters grown up in two cultures very far from each other. [….] And, although we have filmed the relationship of two people, we hope the viewers will understand: the story copes with the question whether we can interfere in another person’s life, and if so, how far we can go and were the limits are.”
