Details

A profound influence on filmmakers from Sergio Leone to Béla Tarr, Miklós Jancsó's The Round-Up is widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of world cinema. 

Set in a detention camp in Hungary 1869, at a time of guerrilla campaigns against the ruling Austrians, Jancsó deliberately avoids conventional heroics to focus on the persecution and dehumanization manifest in a time of conflict. Filmed in Hungary’s desolate and burning landscape, Jancsó uses his formidable technique to create a remarkable and terrifying picture of war and the abuse of power that will speak all too clearly to audiences today.
