The Round Up

Director: Miklos Jancso

Hungary, 1966

Run Time: 90 minutes, Certificate: -,
Genre: Drama, War, Language: Hungarian


This horrifying yet gripping study of ruthless, methodical political oppression demonstrated a remarkable skill of director Miklos Jancso in fusing style and content with rigorous economy and precision. Rased on historical fact, it was Jancas attempt to defuse the romantic concept of an eternal Magyar spirit. The vast Hungarian plain was made for the 'scope screen.
