Movie Info

Shot in cinema verité style, Hungarian director Bela Tarr's drama captures the daily life of ordinary people living in desperate times. Communist-ruled Hungary is undergoing a housing shortage, forcing a seven-member family to share a tiny apartment. As the walls close in, tensions rise: A father chastises his son for not reenlisting, which might have resulted in a larger apartment, and a wife stops at nothing in order to qualify for a new home.

Audience Reviews for Családi tüzfészek (Family Nest)

  • Jun 26, 2015
    In his feature debut, Béla Tarr offers an uncomfortable look into communist Hungary using the Budapest school style of cinema verité and a camera that glides almost invisible among the non-professional actors, but it becomes a bit repetitious in the last half hour with a few redundant monologues.
