Time & Tickets

It is a hot day in August 1945. While the inhabitants of a Hungarian provincial village are preparing for a marriage, an orthodox Jewish father and son arrive in the local station. They rent a horse cart in which they have to transport two wooden crates silently. There is unrest. What is in the crates and what is their purpose? The villagers are burdened by a collective sense of guilt and dark secrets and memories come to the surface through their arrival. Is it the family of Jewish villagers who were deported and did they claim their clandestine property? The village panics and starts taking measures.

Ferenc Török, Hungary, 2017, 94 min. Hungarian & Russian spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Péter Rudolf, Bence Tasnádi, Tamás Szabó Kimmel, Dóra Sztarenki, Ági Szirtes.
