The Revolt of Job

This art-house weepie plays shamelessly on the horror of the Holocaust, turning it into a premise for sentimental fiction, yet it isn't badly made; directors Imre Gyongyossy and Barna Kabay work within the long-take, wide-angle style that the Hungarians have perfected, yet strip it of its tendency toward overstatement and gothic embellishment. In the eastern Hungary of 1943, an elderly Jewish couple adopt a ten-year-old gentile boy, intending to pass their traditions and belongings on to him. Hostile at first, he learns to love them, but when the Nazis threaten, the only way they can save him is to drive him away. With Ferenc Zenthe, Hedi Temessy, and Gabor Feher (1983).
