Silence and Cry

(Csend és kiáltás)
A film by Miklós Jancsó

Hungary, 1965

 

 

An elliptical, claustrophobic drama shot in the brilliant, breathtaking long takes that are Jancsó’s trademark, Silence and Cry is set after the fall of the short-lived Hungarian Soviet Republic of 1919. A young Red soldier, fleeing the anti-Communist manhunt, takes refuge at the isolated farm of a peasant family, who are are already under police scrutiny for being politically suspect...

 

Working on a more intimate canvas, following the epic The Round-Up and The Red and the White, Hungarian master Jancsó's film is still very much concerned with the terrible, tyrannical impact of power, politics and history.

"A newly intimate, domestic level [for the director]...Jancsó’s characteristic sequence shots turn the chamber drama into a political thriller pregnant with wider connotations"
