ABOUT THE FILM

Set in 1947, the Communist Party has just taken power in Hungary. Young communist students at a People’s College have a debate with Catholic seminary students, but worry it will escalate into a fight. Jancsó’s first color film was listed to compete in Cannes, but the festival was cancelled due to the events of May 1968 in Paris. “As always with Jancsó, one feels the terrifying presence of some invisible power pulling the strings, and on a single viewing I would hazard that this might be his best film since ‘The Round-Up’.”–Tom Milne, The Observer, 26 April 1970
