LIFF Audience Favourites on Leeds Film Player.

Winner of the LIFF2015 audience award, Liza, the Fox-Fairy is a deliciously dark comedy based on a Hungarian play. Director Mészáros added a Japanese theme as he was fascinated by the similarities between Japanese and Hungarian traditions. Set in the 1970s, Liza is a lonely 30 year old nurse taking care of Marta, an elderly Japanese widow. Her only friend is Tomy Tani, the ghost of a Japanese pop singer from the 1950s that only Liza can see. When people start to die around Liza in bizarre circumstances, she becomes convinced she is a Fox-Fairy from Japanese mythology, but eccentric Police Sergeant Zoltan believes someone (or something) else is to blame.
