12 August 1945. The inhabitants of a village in rural Soviet-occupied Hungary are preparing for the town clerk’s daughter’s wedding, when two Orthodox Jewish men arrive at the railway station with two large trunks. As they silently make their way to town, a growing panic spreads amongst some of the more prominent townsfolk. Ferenc Török’s striking monochrome ‘Western’ is a tense, chilling, beautifully nuanced drama set in a difficult, transitional period in Hungarian history.
