When two Orthodox Jews return to the town that betrayed them under Nazi-occupation, the stage is set for conflict in this much-lauded Hungarian drama.

A film that is as masterfully directed and emotionally poignant as Son of Saul, 1945 is an instant classic. A Jewish father and son return to the village from which they were deported, and where indifferent bystanders seized their home and possessions. Their arrival is a moment of crisis for the small community, whose members struggle to cope with feelings of guilt and fear of revenge.

Shot in expressive black and white, 1945 is a quiet yet striking study of the aftershocks of war.

“A fresh, intelligent cinematic approach to a difficult topic that takes on a transitional time in Hungarian history with subtlety and nuance” – Alissa Simon, Variety
