Hungarian Rhapsody ★★★ 1978

In 1911, a Hungarian nobleman joins the ranks of the rebelling peasants in order to oppose his brother, who represents aristocratic repression. One of Jancso's clearest political films, and one that continues the filmmaker's experiments with long, uncut sequences and dynamic miseenscene. In Hungarian with English subtitles. 101m/C VHS . HU Gyorgy Cserhalmi, Lajos Balaszovits, Gabor Koncz, Bertalan Solti; D: Miklos Jancso.
