12 August 1945, 11 AM. Two mysterious strangers dressed in black appear at the railway station of a Hungarian village.

Within a few hours, everything changes. Secrets, sins, reckoning, love, betrayal, confrontation.Written by
At the first sigh, a film for Central European public. because it presents realities who are told by grandparents to nephews.
in same measure, a parable. about fear, shadows of past, reactions to a challenge.
the basic virtue - its minimalism. two strangers, with two boxes, in a Hungarian village station. preparations for a wedding. and the presence of strangers as basic menace. the tension. and the reactions. all seems perfect, from photography to the performances. but the great good point is the clash between minimalism and the chain of details from the circle around the mayor. result - a masterpiece. not only for artistic motifs. but for the admirable way to translate the essence of a world in clear manner.
