A film by Károly Makk
Hungary, 1971



Károly Makk's beloved film, based on the autobiographical writings of Tibor Déry, is a meditation on time. memory, love and loss.


Two women - an elderly mother and a wife - await the return of political prisoner János.

Beautifully played by two giants of Hungarian cinema, Lili Darvas and Mari Törõcsik, the film
is a subtle yet powerful exploration of the consequences of living under totalitarian rule.


Perfectly realised, Makk's tender masterpiece comes to Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in a gorgeous new 4K restoration.


“Makk's haunting, atmospheric and beautifully performed film, brilliantly shot by János Tóth, captures exactly the fear and uncertainty of the time... outstanding”
Derek Malcolm's Century of Cinema
