MTI-Hungary Today 2019.01.21.

Hungarian director Zsolt Pozsgai’s film, The Devoted, received the Golden Fox award at the gala of the Calcutta International Cult Film Festival held between January 16 and 17, Pozsgai told MTI on Monday.

The film tells the story of an encounter between the founder of the Protestant Church, John Calvin, and Catholic Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit order. The main characters were played by Máté Szabó and Ádám Lux, respectively.

The film was made to mark the 500th anniversary of Reformation in 2018.

The Devoted has won awards earlier at festivals in Monaco, Zurich and Argentina.
