1969 French Cinema Critics Award / Best Foreign Film
“If you've never encountered Jancsó’s work, you shouldn't miss this.” - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"A tour de force of a very special kind ... an astonishing director." - Derek Malcolm, The Guardian
"Miklós Jancsó ... one of the great political film makers." - The Village Voice
"He occupies a unique place in Hungarian culture.
If he hadn't made such films as The Round-Up, My Way Home, The Red and the White, and many others, there would have been a void.
Just like Bartók in music and Attila József in poetry, Miklós Jancsó expressed the spirit of his nation and its historical destiny in cinema" István Szabó
