A man's search for his father helps him discover himself
11 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

A good film with a nice flow. The beginning shows Hungary devastated by the war and the postwar reconstruction with its communist government. Our hero (Szabo, Istvan) is clearly determined to find out what he can about his father who died young.All he knows is that he was a doctor and perhaps he was an honoured victim of fascism. He never really finds out but his relationship with his mother, his friends and his Jewish girl friend (of course she has to be Jewish - he is the sheygetz) will make him totally independent of this need to find all about Apa or Father. The movie shows a film being made involving the Holocaust and it is a terrific sequence making the extras walk back and forth and back and forth over the bridge to get them miserable and exhausted - an original idea. This film is good and I have seen it several times without being bored.
