Previous reviews have failed to take account of this film’s “Sitz im Leben”– the current situation in Hungary, where the Fidesz government under Orbán Viktor has played footsie with the broad swath of irredentist voters who continue to harbor anti-Semitic leanings. Hungary has not yet come to terms with its role in the murder of its Jewish citizens. For example, the recently erected monument to Victims of Nazi Aggression portrays Hungary as a Victim State, not as a willing cooperator in the execution of roughly 5% of the national population. But it was Hungarian officials that carried out the orders, not Germans. Hungarian officialdom and non-officialdom was more than willing to participate in the Holocaust, but they are loath to acknowledge any corporate responsibility.
A personal but illustrative anecdote. About seven years ago I was teaching at a gimnázium in a town not far from Budaptest and went to see the movie “Avatar” at a local theater over a weekend. The next Monday, as part of English conversation class, I told my students what I had done, that I had gone to thus and such theater to see the movie. The immediate response to my statement came from a student whom I had come to know as a pretty bright kid who was eager to learn. He said, “Oh yes, Jews own that theater.”
Where the f*** did that come from? Over the past few years I have realized that it comes from the same deep-rooted inability of Hungarians to understand that their loss of territory after WWI and their continuing economic problems come not from their “enemies” (Jews above all, but Gypsies too) but from themselves and the same culture of self-deception and corruption that is depicted in this film.
Which film, by the way, is elegantly framed and carefully composed, is presented with almost stately precision, and which I highly, highly recommend.
Bien, pero sobra. Good, but spare
¿A qué me refiero? Pues que es una película creíble claro, pero me sobra el todo el metraje de la boda, que no tiene interés para la historia. El problema es que ese tiempo la ralentiza y hace que decaiga. Está escrita de forma inteligente, aunque no bien llevada a la pantalla
Los actores están muy bien. Te crees la historia completamente
La iluminación hace que te vayas directo a ese año
El director no me gusta del todo. Si bien cuando se dedica al tema de la película la lleva bien, pero todo el metraje de la boda le sobra y no se da cuenta. No me gustan los planos que hace.
Si bien es una película que sirve para ver esa parte de la historia que no conocíamos pero que ha pasado en todo tipo de guerras y países.
What do I mean? Well, it’s a clear believable movie, but I have plenty of all the footage of the wedding, which has no interest for the story. The problem is that this time slows it down and makes it decay. It is written intelligently, although not well taken to the screen
The actors are very good. You believe the story completely
The lighting makes you go straight to that year
The director does not like me at all. Although when it is dedicated to the subject of the film it takes well, but all the footage of the wedding leftover and does not realize. I do not like the plans he makes.
While it is a movie that serves to see that part of history that we did not know but that has happened in all kinds of wars and countries.
