After seeing this, I'm "Hungary" for more Hungarian movies
5 June 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

"The Revolt of Job" tells the story of a childless Jewish couple in WWII-era Hungary who adopt a Hungarian boy. They raise him with their values and traditions. Unfortunately, the Nazis eventually come and round up all Jewish families in the village. The final scene shows the boy watching as his parents are hauled away like cattle.

I don't know whether or not Hitler's Third Reich was the most evil act in history; there have been numerous genocides throughout the centuries. Maybe the Third Reich is different to the extent that Europe, at least, has had such a hard time getting over it. Some of the greatest movies ("The Great Dictator" and "Schindler's List", for example) have dealt with the Third Reich. "The Revolt of Job" certainly belongs in that number. After watching this movie, you will never be able to forget what people went through in Hungary. It is truly a masterpiece.
