A film by Ádám Fillenz

Inconvenient comfort is about 60 years old Annabelle who really got attached to her mobility scooter. She’s not aware that she’s bound to this vehicle because of her empty yet very comforting life. Throughout a series of events she’ll realize that she has to make a change in order to prevent her life from falling apart.

Director Statement

The Dutch-Hungarian short, Inconvenient comfort gives a critical view on our modern days’ wealthy societies with a unique eastern European taste. This is my directorial as well as my writer debut as a filmmaker. The heroic story of Annabelle is based on my experience of living in the Netherlands for more than two years.
