Critic Reviews for Családi tüzfészek (Family Nest)
This is strong stuff, but the highly formal director of Almanac of Fall, Damnation, and Satantango is still far from apparent.
A gloss on "kitchen sink" drama along the lines of Albee's The Zoo Story
It shows the talented Tarr at his greenest, much before his later skills were more fully developed.
The characters morph into unconvincing mouthpieces for a highly unsubtle political critique.
[The characters] realize the futility of their struggle against beauracracy, but have nothing to do but struggle against it, and in Tarr's committed portrayal of their pathetic struggle, his political rage becomes acutely felt.
Audience Reviews for Családi tüzfészek (Family Nest)
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.
