Storyline

Áron is a happy child in his family. But at some point things take a different turn, and his mother starts to lose her health rapidly. As this happens, the man in charge decides what's best for Áron without consulting the young boy's opinion, and the boy finds himself thrown out of his warm home into an orphanage in the woods. He's utterly displeased by what's happening, without knowing he has yet to face much worse. After a hard time getting over the harrassment of his classmates and being accepted as one of them, another obstacle on the way to his peace of mind faces him: His obnoxious teachers. He has no intention of being bad, but it's beyond his ability to blend into the revolting place he's in. The nasty treatment of the teaching crew gets the better of him, and he's not all that calm and passive anymore. But that leads into unpleasant events which Áron himself wouldn't want.

Great movie!
28 May 2004 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Torzok a.k.a. Abandoned is set in a Hungarian orphanage in 1960, which means pretty much anyone watching the movie is simply an alien to the subject and setting. But it captivates you, teaches you, and delivers an excellent medley of emotions. The boys, the good teacher, the nasty headmaster, the lady.. Everyone's showing pearls of acting! The soundtrack is good too. By the time I'm writing this review, the movie is rated 6.4 on IMDB, and that's absolutely underrated. I wasn't impressed by the ending, but other than that the movie was quite fascinating. A Swedish movie called Ondskan, which is somewhat similar to this one in subject, is considerably better. So if you like this one, you should see that one too. But then again, if you like that one, you should see this one too! I think Abandoned could have been longer, and the ending could have been much better. Nonetheless, it's a marvellous movie and I'll give it an 8.5/10 easily.
