Storyline

Budapest 1956. A group of Westerners try to leave the city when Soviet military occupy the country. But the airport is closed down and they have to take a bus to the border. At the border they are stopped by red tape - and Major Surov. The reasons are sketchy, but it seems that the major is romantically interested in one of the westerners, Diana Ashmore. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Quotes

Diana Ashmore: [Dancing with the Major] You're drunk!
Major Surov: Yes, I am. And it's marvelous! Half my life I've been a soldier. Five campaigns, four scars, a shattered hip. And all that time, the Army's been my wife. A mean, old, possessive, insatiable, glorious bitch! And tonight I am cheating on her. And it's wonderful. Like picking flowers on a battlefield!

east and west portrayed symbolically by the two major actors
24 August 2000 | by (vienna, austria) – See all my reviews

a great movie, with a rather unclear political message. it´s shot in a theatrical style, i.c. most of the action takes place inside. mayor surov and diana ashcroft seem equally suspicious of each other. emotions run high since the western tourists and business-people seem unwilling and unable to yield to the eastern-russian charm of the mayor, although he makes every effort to understand their point of view. the two opposite world-views are made pointedly clear, but the movie also shows that human emotions cannot be controlled by politics. its powerfully acted and has a high emotional impact for a 50s movie.
