1945 (12A) – 2017 Hungary 91 mins (Hungarian with subtitles)

Director: Ferenc Török
Stars: Péter Rudolf, Bence Tasnádi, Tamás Szabó Kimmel

In a small Hungarian village at the end of the second world war, the locals are gearing up for the wedding of the local magistrate’s son. The arrival of two Jewish men, who may be father and son, with two mysterious wooden boxes gets everyone worried – have they come to claim their property? Or to seek revenge for the mass round-up of their fellows by the Nazis, to which the village turned a blind eye? The village’s smug façade slowly crumbles as motives are questioned in this powerful drama.

“A fresh, intelligent cinematic approach to a difficult topic that takes on a transitional time in Hungarian history with subtlety and nuance” – Alissa Simon, Variety

For Holocaust Memorial Day (27 Jan).
