On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son return to a village in Hungary to (symbolically) bury their dead. The townspeople — suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and cunning — expect the worst and behave accordingly. With admirable restraint, director Ferenc Török paints a complex picture of a society trying to come to terms with the recent horrors they’ve experienced, perpetrated, or just tolerated for personal gain. A superb ensemble cast, lustrous black and white cinematography, and historically detailed art direction contribute to an eloquent drama that reiterates Thomas Wolfe’s famed sentiment: you can’t go home again.

"A fresh, intelligent cinematic approach to a difficult topic that takes on a transitional time in Hungarian history with subtlety and nuance." — Variety
