What are people saying?

  • redux's rating of the film Nobody's Daughter

    Brilliant adaptation of Zsigmond Móricz's classic novel, a harsh indictment of Hungary's pre-WW2 Horthy régime. The gut-wrenching story of the orphan girl, inspired by the real-life experiences of the writer's adopted daughter, reveals the scandalous social injustices of that régime, an object of nostalgia for Hungary's current rulers. Little Zsuzsa Czinkóczi's contribution to the movie is beyond description.
