Synopsis

Miklos Jancso's classic film is a starkly atmospheric tale of friendship in the final days of World War II. Joska (Andras Kozak) is a young Hungarian making his way home, through countryside full of the debris of war, when he is captured and imprisoned by Russians. Left in the custody of a young Russian soldier, Kolya (Sergei Nikonenko), the two youths form a friendship in spite of not speaking each other's language. Joska's attempts to complete his journey homeward provide the framework for this powerful film, considered by many to be Jancso's first masterpiece.
