Memorable, moving, powerful story
29 November 1999 | by pauletSee all my reviews

This movie shows the transformation of a young, brave rebel into a calculating Party apparatchik in Cold War Hungary. For anyone who views Communism as a tragedy, this is an unforgettable human illustration of how that tragedy happens
