Film description

One of the few works directed by the outstanding cinematographer, Sandor Sára. Late 1940s, times of the communist terror in Hungary. The main character loses a chance to enter a film school, when his father is arrested. From now on, every stage of his life will be connected to the growing cruelty of Rákosi's regime. At first, the character will witness collectivisation based on fraud and forced confiscation of farmers' land, and then he will be present at the humiliating disinfection of a camp for Roma, culminated in shaving all women's heads.

Sára not only confronted Hungarian history, boldly showing its Stalinist episode, but he also made a reflection on the artist's responsibility. After many years, the film's character returns to the events of his past, attempting to reconstruct them in a feature film. But the adaptation is fake and conventional and primacy of documentaries above features is proven beyond doubt. The message of Sára's film is a real paradox, especially in this work, which is one of the most refined compositions and the most visually admirable films of those times.
