Directed by Miklos Jancso | 1967

With Jozsef Madaras, Tibor Molnar, Andras Kozak

"Working in elaborately choreographed long takes with often spectacular vistas, Jancso invites us to study the mechanisms of power almost abstractly, with a cold eroticism that may suggest some of the subsequent work of Stanley Kubrick."
—Chicago Reader

Titan of Hungarian cinema Miklos Jancso’s visual tour-de-force follows the fates of Hungarian revolutionaries who join the Communists (the red) in the fight against government forces (the white) during the Russian Revolution. The director’s wondrously unchained camera is a perpetual motion machine, ceaselessly prowling the CinemaScope frame in which characters are trapped in a senseless ritual of violence and death.
