Storyline

News quickly spreads of the murder of a Romany family in a Hungarian village. The perpetrators have escaped and nobody claims to know who might have committed the crime. For another Romany family living close by, the murder only serves to confirm their latent, carefully repressed fears. Far away in Canada the head of the family decides that his wife, children and their grandfather must join him as soon as possible. Living in fear of the racist terror that surrounds them and feeling abandoned by the silent majority, the family tries to get through the day after the attack. By nightfall when darkness descends on the village the family pushes the beds closer together than usual. Yet their hope of escaping the madness proves illusory. Based on an actual series of killings in Hungary that claimed the lives of eight people in less than a year, Bence Fliegauf portrays the pogrom-like atmosphere which breeds such violence. The camera stays hot on the heels of the protagonists, making the ... Written by Bence Fliegauf

What's the point?
10 January 2014 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

This movie caused a huge controversy in Hungary, and I don't understand why. Of course the integration of the gypsy minority is a big problem here, but Benedek Fliegauf's film has got nothing to say about it. The director doesn't have a message, he just portrays the life of a family, he doesn't want to deal with any issues regarding the gypsies or racism. I mean, for example Crash was able to show 6-7 sides of racism, Fliegauf doesn't even wants to show one. The Hungarians majority are racist in this movie for no reason, but in one scene, there are gypsies attacking innocent people (also for no reason), so I wouldn't say it's one sided, but the main problem is that everything happens for no reason, revealing how shallow this film is. And because there are no thoughts to fill this movie with, most of the scenes are a bit overdrawn. The lighting and the acting seems amateur, but the overall quality of the movie is good.

So by "shallow" I don't want to mean it's bad (that's why I gave it a 7 out of 10), but this movie seems dumb compared to movies like Crash or Tropa de Elite.
