The Round-Up

Miklos Jancso's 1965 film, about the effects of imprisonment, fear, and torture in a police state, signified a new trend in Hungarian cinema—savage irony and an emotional eloquence that springs not from the richness of setting or character development, but from the starkness with which Jancso portrays a series of ruthlessly cruel incidents. The Hungarian peasants, outlaws, and herdsmen rounded up by the Austrians after an unsuccessful revolt in the mid-19th century defeat themselves—their resolve crumbles and fear magnifies their own weaknesses. In Hungarian with subtitles. 90 min.
