The Story of My Wife

More info

While drinking, Dutch cargo ship captain Jakob Störr and his friend make a bet undertaking Jakob to marry the first woman which enters the cafe. This is how he meets a whimsical Frenchwoman Lizzy and the two get married later. It is also the beginning of a love-interwoven romance inspired by nothing less than One Thousand and One Nights tales. Life of loving and painfully honest Störr is suddenly filled with turmoils from that moment on – and we are able to grasp in a fundamental and dramatic manner the complexity, mystery, fragile beauty, and elusive, uncontrollable nature of life through his character. The new film by director Ildikó Enyedi – awarded with the Golden Bear and Academy Awards nominee for her movie On Body and Soul – is based on Milán Füst’s eponymous book. His novel was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature and has also been translated into more than 20 languages. Show more
