Reviews

A 3-disc set comprising three haunting epics from the Hungarian cinema's most renowned filmmaker, a profound influence on filmmakers from Sergio Leone to Béla Tarr. Tarr proclaimed People need to see Jancsó s really beautiful three or four first movies". Set includes:

My Way Home (1964) Poetic, evocative and deeply personal - My Way Home is considered Jancsó's first masterpiece. A young Hungarian is captured by Russian soldier, but forms an unlikely friendship with his captor.

The Red & The White (1967): Set in 1919, during the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, this is a war film unlike any other.

The Round-Up (1969): Set in a detention camp in Hungary 1869, Jancsó uses his formidable technique to create a remarkable and terrifying picture of war and the abuse of power that still resonates today.

These three films from legendary Hungarian filmmaker Miklos Jancso are amazing, poignant, beautiful and emotionally shattering tales of war, loss, humanity and corruption.
THE ROUND-UP itself is worth it at this price, but with the addition of THE RED AND THE WHITE and MY WAY HOME this is an absolute bargain!

Verified Purchase
An excellent collection that includes three key films from the 1960's from the long and influential career Miklós Jancsó, the often overlooked, Hungarian filmmaker. The collection also includes a lengthy interview with the director and two of his many documentaries, plus the reprint of an important appreciation of Jancsó's work by former "Sight & Sound" editor, Penelope Houston, published in 1969.

My one reservation, however, is the transfer of THE RED AND THE WHITE [Csillagosok, katonák] which is noticeably soft throughout. The U.S. release on Kino is sharper, but with a different translation and subtitles that are a tad too large.

That noted, this is a valuable addition to any collection, not likely to be replaced or surpassed, on DVD or Blu-ray, anytime soon.
