    Teenage boys will be teenage boys: shooting frogs and chasing after skinny dipping girls. Don't they know there's a war on? They even milk cows together. Shirtless, sometimes.

    Odd little film drags a bit but has enough plot twists to keep it interesting.

    A simple, minimalist film that slowly impresses its ideas and passions on the audience. Despite showing little characteristics I really endeared to the characters and was drawn in by their plight and situation.

    A somewhat autobiographical film of Miklos Jancso's experience during world war 2. The directors most prominant themes and recurring visual ideas are firmly in place from this film. The influence from Michelangelo Antonioni is strong and dispite a mostly roaming camera, the cinematography and shot compositon often rival the great directors finest work. Jancso's characters have no motivation, no evident purpose and are constantly surrounded by random acts of violence. Themes that would recur in his films to almost become an obsession. His films are often hard to get on with when he continually places barriers to divert any emotional engagement with character or story. That said, his visual prowess and astute subtle sense of atmosphere are up there with the best of art cinema.
