Szemem sarka

From the Corner of My Eyes
Alone at the bus stop, he takes one final drag on his cigarette. Inside the bus, everything rattles and creaks, the dark city slowly passing by the window. And then there she is – reflected in the glass. Their eyes meet: she smiles; beads of sweat form on his forehead. With a style reminiscent of expressionist woodcuts and in daydreamy colours, Domonkos Erhardt’s animated short captures the magic of a fleeting encounter.
