User Reviews

A moving exposition of both the best and worst of humanity.
22 December 2003 | by rocketguybSee all my reviews

A magnificent and accomplished work. All the elements of the film ... cinematography, direction, acting and lighting combine to create an air of suspense and empathy. Filmed entirely on location and in the original Hungarian language, this short has more emotional impact than many a 2 hour feature film. Go out of your way to see this one if you can.
