Absolutely marvellous film. Beware of negative reviews from Csendor sympathisers

My wife and I found this film to be absolutely extraordinary. This film has an amazing plot and was excellently produced. We also noticed that people whose family members committed atrocities during World War Two have been trying very hard to demolish the quality of this film in their reviews. People should be aware of the crimes of the Hungarian Csendors before the outbreak of WW2. People should witness the history. In Novi Sat, Subotica, Vojvodina, among other places, the Csendor massacred a great number of Serbs, Communists and Jews, with Hitler's backing. The Csendor were an integral part of the Nazi killing machine. They loyally picked up Jewish people in the villages and put them on the animal train into Auschwitz. The authorities should take action against Csendor sympathisers to stop their effort to whitewash history.
