Hungarian Goulash
8 August 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This movie assumes we viewers have a lot of background knowledge. I guess this is a "cold war drama". It seemed, to me, like a James Bond film. Anyway, it's about reporters in Hungry being threatened by Communists. Dana Andrews is taken by the Communists, and George Sanders has to get him back.

I found myself watching lead actress Märta Torén's performance above all. The photography, direction, and performances are interesting - Ms. Torén's performance is my favorite.

My biggest criticism it that I couldn't figure out what the Communists ultimately do to Mr. Andrews. Did he have a lobotomy or something? I think the filmmakers owe it to the audience to explain; and, with more than just an offhand speculation that he'll be "okay". We're supposed to assume Mr. Andrews is going to be "okay" and character Gabor will be safe with the Communists?

I don't understand.
