Based on the acclaimed short story “Homecoming” by Gáor T. Szátó

On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son return to a village in Hungary

while the villagers prepare for the wedding of the town clerk’s son.

The townspeople –suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and cunning –expect the worst and behave accordingly. The

town clerk fears the men may be heirs of the village’s deported Jews and expects them to

demand their illegally acquired property back.

Director Ferenc Töö paints a complex picture of a society trying to come to terms with

the recent horrors they’ve experienced, perpetrated, or just tolerated for personal gain. A

superb ensemble cast, lustrous black and white cinematography, and historically detailed art

direction contribute to an eloquent drama that reiterates Thomas Wolfe’s famed sentiment:

you can’t go home again.
