HUNGARIAN FILM WINS OSCAR FOR BEST FOREIGN FILM

Post  Lamplighter on Mon Feb 29, 2016 8:13 am

Some good news for a brief time. Much jubilation here, the last time a Hungarian film won this was 'Mephisto' in 1982. Well done, one and all!! LL

Well done, LL! I am sure it was a vast improvement on films about mops, or Leonardo getting eaten by a bear, etc.

I wasn't greatly intererested, but then, I freely admit to generally being a Philistine where entertainment is concerned.

It's grim, about Auschwitz and a sonderkommando - Jews responsible for herding their fellow religionists into the gas chambers and later burning/burying the bodies, not for the faint-hearted. Interesting that the last time Hungary won that film was also set in the Nazi era. LL

Ah, I would actually watch that, then - I assume it will turn up on TV at some point?

I assume so, but it will need subtitles/dubbing first. If I see anything about it I will post it in here. LL

Thanks, LL. Much more interesting than a movie about a woman inventing a new mop. The mind boggles - that's the sort of movie I'd pay NOT to see.

Thanks, LL. It looks, not good, the subject is too dark for that, but well worth watching, and a worthy winner.

The story of the sonderkommando is darkness itself, a member lived for only a short time before he ended up in the gas chambers. LL
'We did the dirty work of the Holocaust':
Sonderkommando Auschwitz

Sonderkommandos was the name given to concentration camp prisoners whose job was to service the assembly lines of death. A new book gives accounts of their survival. As one of them put it: 'I ceased belonging to the human race.'

Will watch that when it comes to a TV near me.

I can see from that short excerpt why it won.
