This wellgrouped trio of films from renowned Hungarian directors reveals how the nation’s brutal political history has impacted on everyday lives. Károly Makk’s poetic Love focuses on the wife and dying mother of a political prisoner.
Miklós Jancsó’s My Way Home traces the unlikely friendship between a Hungarian student and his Russian captor at the end of WW2. And Márta Mészáros’ Diary For My Children reflects on a teen’s difficult post-war return to Budapest. All are haunting, intimate yet unsentimental.
