Storyline

News quickly spreads of the murder of a Romany family in a Hungarian village. The perpetrators have escaped and nobody claims to know who might have committed the crime. For another Romany family living close by, the murder only serves to confirm their latent, carefully repressed fears. Far away in Canada the head of the family decides that his wife, children and their grandfather must join him as soon as possible. Living in fear of the racist terror that surrounds them and feeling abandoned by the silent majority, the family tries to get through the day after the attack. By nightfall when darkness descends on the village the family pushes the beds closer together than usual. Yet their hope of escaping the madness proves illusory. Based on an actual series of killings in Hungary that claimed the lives of eight people in less than a year, Bence Fliegauf portrays the pogrom-like atmosphere which breeds such violence. The camera stays hot on the heels of the protagonists, making the ... Written by Bence Fliegauf

One-sided portrayal of a country-wide problem
18 October 2012 | by datbenik513See all my reviews

This movie is nothing less and nothing more than a state-funded propaganda movie targeted to spoil Hungary's country image even further. While official media is silent as a grave about the repeated, every day more and more bestial robbing and killing of defenseless elderly people in their homes for ten dollars by the same Romany or about the many villages which are being fled by Hungarians because of the Romany terror, any excess directed at the Romany will be brought out into the wide world.

I strongly underline that I do not approve of any terror committed against any person; I'm against one-sided portrayals of this burning problem. That already concludes why I give this movie a 1 out of 10 rating.
