Budapest in the 1980s. The story takes place in one of the dancehalls where Hungarian folk music was rediscovered, its central theme being the process of becoming informer, the trauma for a whole society. Our Secrets is a kind of arrival at the reality of the present day. Not only because of pressing questions like the human helplessness against its own instincts, but primarily because it shows how values become insignificant in a world in which power, slinking in our lives makes our existence unbearable. It is the top performance of Béla Pintér’s Company in their last 15 years.
