It was confusing at first, but then everything started to come together and unravel. I really enjoyed it.

Sadly, I was very excited for this movie but it just wasnt for me. I don't know if it was because I was tired or not "sophisticated" enough but it was at times excruciatingly slow for me. Mind you I am a person who loves slow paced films. However, to the film's credit the subject is facinating and original and I think it deserves a watch if at least to receive a more in depth understanding of the aftermath of the Holocaust, as well as the issues of bystanding and complicity.

Here’s a clever, sideways take on the grimmest of human horrors, a clever parable that delivers the same heavy message, but with mordant wit and originality.

Torok juggles plenty of characters and themes — guilt, greed, Russian meddling, the Holocaust, justice — but he always remains firmly in control of his story. Every frame is meticulously crafted.

Director Ferenc Török departs from the High Noon arc, and finds a way to end the movie with an invocation of violence, rather than an eruption of it. His final image, gruesome and evocative, is unforgettable.
