Fejos made a film of a Hungarian legend, a story about peculiar April showers that arouse the mothers of paradise to protect the virtue of the girls. Fejos interweaves levels of reality in his work, filming the fable with a pinch of the surreal, and anchors the story in detailed observation of village life. The dream as a code of reality.
