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

Mixed thoughts
11 June 2013 | by davidsid-davidsidSee all my reviews

I like arty films in which I have to think about what is really happening... Although I was a bit annoyed by the fact that the picture was mainly dark and I couldn't see many things. I assume the director wanted to express the spiritual and factual state in which Travellers live their everyday life. Nevertheless there is a certain degree of discrimination. Not a quiet one. After watching the film I felt confused not really sure what had happened. After reading the comment of the reviewer from Germany, I understood better what I've just seen. I like films where your mind is put to the test, unlike the Hollywood commercial stupid and manipulating films. I think it must have been more comprehensive though.
