"Torok juggles plenty of characters and themes - guilt, greed, Russian meddling, the Holocaust, justice - but he always remains firmly in control of his story. Every frame is meticulously crafted"

/let's talk about this film

/Ferenc Török


born 1971 Budapest, Hungary

“The film has a universal meaning, it shows the structure of a relatively closed society with a powerful mafia-type man. We see this story repeated all over the world, where rich men rule over poor people who don’t have strong moral standards to reject their desire for the property of others. Human nature is very similar, we are very fragile, we all have ideals about what humans can be, but poverty can push people to do things that don’t fit morally.”
