Wondering why times are missing?

1945

1945

In the last, waning days of World War II, a tiny Hungarian village celebrating a local wedding is thrown into a tizzy when two Jewish strangers show up at the train station. What looks like garden variety anti-Semitism slowly reveals itself to be the fear that Holocaust survivors are returning to claim family property, seized by greedy villagers after the local Jewish population was shipped off to concentration camps. This naturalistic looking, beautifully shot (in deeply shadowed black and white) postwar drama uses a slow-building tension and an expert ensemble cast to expose Europe's Dirty Little Secret. FULL REVIEW: Stark drama tackles postwar Europe’s Dirty Little Secret by Devin D. O’Leary (5/24/2018). 91 minutes Unrated.
