For the purposes of the film 14 sheep were spread with flammable substance, and then to the order by Judit Elek were burned alive. 69 scientists from the Jagiellonian University demanded from authorities of forbidding Judit Elek entry to Poland. Scientists wrote among others: "No director knowing his own worth would debase himself for using so primitive and cruel methods". See more »
This type of story has been done before. Hungarian Jews are being persecuted during earlier times. The fact that it is a Hungarian production kept me watching because I was unsure what was going to happen, unlike most conventional studio product. An unintentional byproduct of the film was that I was amazed by how many rituals some religions have and it makes one wonder why people put up with it. One thing is for certain that the film doesn't make me long for the old days. Absorbing film but for one viewing only.
