Did you hear the one about the disabled slaughterhouse finance manager and the attractive quality control inspector?It's also the premise of "On Body and Soul," writer-director Ildiko Enyedi's 2017 feature. The Hungarian film is being projected as part of Beirut's European Film Festival. It took the Golden Bear at the 2017 Berlinale and is one of five titles competing for the foreign language Oscar. The woodland sequence is bridged to the main story by a shot of hooves crowded into an enclosed space.Much of "On Body and Soul" is located in this abattoir, nestled on the outskirts of Budapest. Veteran abattoir employees will find these sequences a trifle sanitized, but the rest of the audience will get the point."On Body and Soul" will be reprised Tuesday, Jan. 30, at 10:15 p.m. at Metropolis Cinema-Sofil.
