Storyline

At a dusty crossroads in the Soviet Union villagers surrender their possessions - a horse, a samovar, a goat - to the state. The train which takes them away brings to the village a physically and mentally handicapped woman, barely able to speak. She makes herself bracelets of burrs and studies herself in a cracked and cloudy mirror. Befriended by very few, teased and tormented by many she seeks protection at a huge portrait of Stalin. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

A Thought Provoking Tale
20 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been on a Hungarian cinema kick this month for sure, and boy have I found some winners. This movie takes a hard look at life in the Soviet Union. Imagine living in a time or place where freedom was not an accepted concept. Where keeping your family fed and happy was out of your hands.

I love movies that force the viewer and the characters in the film to re-evaluate their outlook on life and their own capacity for sympathy and understanding. This film does just that.

You will have a new and deeper understanding of these times for having watched this film. It really did prove to me that Hungarian cinema is alive and well.
