August, 1849: the Hungarian army had surrendered to the Habsburg-Russian overpower, arms were laid down, and retribution would come soon. A small group of people living in the forest don't know about all this, their hiding place isolates them from the rest of the world. They are guerillas. Their days are numbered.
Those who look for a heroic-romantic evocation of the revolution will be disappointed. The first feature film of director Kárpáti György Mór is a dreary and laconic cinema experience which could be about the aftermath of any war in the past two hundred years. The story follows Barnabás, a disillusioned young man who walks across the country in order to find his wounded brother. Finally Barnabás discovers a small group of guerillas deep in the forest, but his sibling Antal doesn't receive him with great joy: both are hiding an unpleasing secret. To make things even more complicated, the two brothers fall in love with Luca, who works as a nurse in the camp.

The film features a lot of naturalistic scenes about death and violence, so it is probably not the best choice for childen even though it is rated PG-13. Those who look for an action movie will also be disappointed because the plot advances rather slowly, focusing on the characters' psyche and showing how this life of isolation affects their group dynamics. The stifling atmosphere of the film is very strong, the first scenes already capture our attention and there may be some boredom in between but the final showdown is rather captivating.
