Peter thinks he recognized his father in a documentary on a mysterious accident. His father had been deserted from the Communist Hungary in the 70s and has not been heard of since. Peter travels to America and after an eventful investigation he finally finds his father and his new family. The reunion brings plenty of experiences and teaches several lessons to both son and father.
The Hungarian director Gyorgy Palfi’s sixth feature film His Master’s Voice is a SF dystopian film based on one family’s dark history. Its production scale greatly increased compared to his previous work. The main protagonist Peter is trying to find his roots after the disappearance of his father who was a prominent Hungarian mathematician in the 1980s. Questioning everything, Peter comes to the States and slowly finds the truth of his father’s disappearance as he searches through the mysterious event "The Mystery of Colorado" in 1984 which his father was involved. As one gets closer to the center of the mystery and unraveling clues, the boundary line between reality and fantasy becomes thinner. Adapted from Stanislaw Lem’s 1968 novel, this film is a collage of science fiction, family drama, and fake documentary expressing Gyorgy Palfi’s sense of style. In the film, criticism toward the Cold War and focusing on the dark side of the evolution of science and technology emphasized in the original novel, meets with the avant-garde style of Palfi as expressed in his previous work.
