The Round-Up (Szegénylegények)
János Görbe, Zoltán Latinovits, Tibor Molnár / Fiction / Hungarian
An intense exploration of a dark period of Hungarian history - the detention of political dissidents challenging the nineteenth century totalitarian Austrian regime.
It is easy to see the influence of this work on Tarr: in the brooding exploration of violence, mental and physical; the uneasy cohabitation of man and his environment; and a clipped, austere aesthetic. Surreal and hallucinogenically beautiful, Jancsó’s work serves as an emphatic cry for freedom of will, politically and personally, and transcends time and remains eminently relevant to a contemporary audience. Programmed by Béla Tarr, one of EIFF 2011’s guest curators
