Péter Esterházy writes, " I can see two things worth saying about my novels: the first that they are not about me but the protagonist (there is a hero and a story) and secondly that things do not just happen, you have to know." These words can certainly be applied to Anna's Film. Esterházy's novel, just like the film based on it, is a story of a decision. There is a story. The protagonists - the writer and his wife - have to decide whether to keep a fourth child that is on the way. There is a hero or rather a heroine who is Anna, the wife. So, we see a married couple, deeply devoted to each other and a very serious conflict "... to give birth here would be a tragedy. No, worse, a comedy..." There are already three children and whether to have the fourth, that is the question.
