Movie Reviews

Fascinating and underseen
One-Line Film Reviews | Easton, MD | 06/16/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Bottom Line:

Sunshine isn't perfect, but its story of 100 years in Hungarian history told through the eyes of a grandfather, father, and son (all played by Ralph Fiennes) is consistently compelling and replete with moments that linger in my brain; if you're a 20th century history buff with 3 hours on your hand, you could hardly do better than renting this underrated gem from Istvan Szabo.

"This is a very good film. It leads us from the Autria-Hungarian Empire to Nazi regime in the flesh of a family of jewish origin that wants, all the time, to "belong" to the country they live in. So much that they ignore the dangers of the rising of nazism and pay for it.
Incredible fencing scenes, as one of the members of the family becomes World Champion representing Hungary, but with the contradictiosn on a society that do not accept jewish religion as one suitable for prominent citizens, or high state employees.
A very well filmed saga that shows the turn of the century from "middle Europe empires" point of view."
