Poland: S. P. Eagle / Romulus Horizon, Circa 1957. Original Hungarian poster for the 1965 film.
In the final days of WWII, a 17-year-old boy wanders the countryside. He is captured by Soviet troops, then released, then captured once more. He has donned a German uniform for warmth and is imprisoned at a remote barracks, where he strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young Russian soldier. His attempts to return home form the film's landscape, with Jancso's signature themes on display, including the psychological presence of landscape, the randomness of violence, and the arbitrary nature of power.
