A population mysteriously deprived of its telecommunication capacity crumbles into chaos in the mesmerizing dystopian drama "Transmission." Magyar helmer Roland Vranik ("Black Brush") sets his second feature in an anonymous seaside town in the not-too-distant future, conveying a sense of unease through disturbing, beautifully composed visuals, an eerie soundtrack and shocking moments of violence. Although stronger on atmosphere than story and character development, the pic is an intriguing fest item that could develop a cult following in ancillary.

The loose narrative centers on three brothers who rep differing responses to the new reality. The eldest, Henrik (Sandor Terhes), is nearly immobilized by insomnia without television's narcotizing effect. Middle brother Vilmos (Zoltan Ratoti) must cope with two frightened young daughters as his wife (Eva Kerekes) goes increasingly mad. Otto (Karoly Hajduk), the youngest, starts a relationship with Julia (Kata Weber), who seems surprisingly pert considering she suffers a vicious attack during the pic's opening moments. Elsewhere in town, some of the elderly inexplicably are beginning to disappear. Shot in the remarkable silver light of Constanca, Romania, elegant lensing by Gergely Poharnok ("Taxidermia") and a hypnotic score are critical to the ambience.

Camera (color), Gergely Poharnok; editor, Wanda Kiss; music, Realistic Crew, David Hegyi, Csaba Kalotas, Krisztian Vranik; production designer, Gabor Vallcz; costume designer, Sosa Juristovszky; sound (DTS), Tamas Zanyi.
