Movie Reviews

One of the best films ever made
erichorn | 02/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although it might seem like an exaggeration, but in my opinion this Hungarian version of Georg Büchner's "Woyzeck" is one of the ten best films ever made. It is comparable to such a films as "Citizen Kane". János Szász hasn't tried to make a film which is only a cinema version of Büchner's play. He just uses the atmosphere and creates a whole new setting for the film. Woyzeck (Lajos Kovács) works as a railroad employee, surrounded by a surrealistic environment. An impressive film in brilliant black-and-white pictures, containing discouraging metaphors. The suggestive decelerated style of narration leads the spectators to a somber end of the road, the place of a final humiliation. In contrast to Klaus Kinski (BRD 1979, director: Werner Herzog) Lajos Kovács plays the part of Woyzeck not less superb, but a lot more gloomy."
