Storyline

In 1849, the liberation war against the Habsburg Empire is close to its end in Hungary. Having hidden from military draft, Barnabás leaves his hometown and walks across the country to find and save his wounded brother who has been hiding with a guerilla group deep in the forest. Despite their exhaustion, lack of food or information, they are still fighting for their cause. Barnabás finds his brother alienated and distrustful. The tension between the boys further increases when they turn out to be attracted to the same nurse in the camp. Hoping he can earn his brother's trust and take him home, Barnabás decides to stay and lie about his past. In the meantime, he has to face the cruelty of war. Written by Proton Cinema

There are no heroes in Gyorgy's Guerilla
23 July 2020 | by Goras89See all my reviews

It's August 1849. Fear reigns as Austrian imperial forces aided by the Tsarist Russian army crush Hungarians who took up arms a year earlier in order to gain independence in the Habsburg Empire. Hunted down and divided, warn out guerrilla troops now hide in the forests. Barnabas (Gergely Varadi), is looking for his younger brother, Antal (Benett Vilmanyi), who is committed to the independence movement. He wants to persuade him to join their family who have fled to Miskolc. Tension starts to rise between brothers when they turn out to be attracted to the same nurse in the camp.

Air of death lingers more generally throughout the film. Film does not focus on large-scale battles. There is only a lot of forest here, in which Cossacks, Austrians and Hungarians are hiding at the same time, and whoever sees it is trying to kill the other one.

Gyorgy Mor Karpati first full lenght feature film paints a realistic portrait of the life of this small group, which is desperately biding its time on the edge of final defeat.
