Exemplar and emotionally tender filmmaking of massive content.
The film figuratively comes off the screen with spendor and lyricism. As it is a rendition of the famous Hungarian medieval opera and photographed lovingly by (Hungarian-American) Vilmos Zsigmond, performed by Hungary's best operatic voices, a presentation of sumptuously beautiful landscape and classical architecture, "Bank ban" holds a tremendous treasure for the viewer. Images haunt one's unconsciousness long after the experience.
