Klaus Maria Brandauer,
In Csontváry,Hungarian director Zoltan Huszarik depicts the life of a major Hungarian artist.
Hungarian film " Csontváry " is about the eponymous artist who gave a new direction to art in Hungary. As it is not a direct biography, what makes this Zoltan Huszarik film special is its insistence on separating the life of an artist as merely an artist from that of a human being. This aspect is depicted by showing Csontváry at his creative best as well as by his being with his family and friends. This film reveals many fascinating aspects of Tivadar Kosztka Csontváry's life especially his emotional turmoil as an artist. Watching this film, one invariably gets the feeling that the turmoil and trauma to which Csontváry was subjected also became an integral part of actor Zoltan Latinovits' life as he died after this film. It is to his memory that this film is dedicated. This film also helps us to learn about art and artists whose objective is to find 'god' through their art. Although it did not have any overt political message, Csontváry did manage to portray the cause of 'socialism' in one of its scenes. Lastly, Csontváry is a film for all cinema and art lovers who wish to learn more about one of Hungarian art's greatest personalities.
