About the film

Constantly haunted by the face of the Italian soldier he bayoneted at the close of the war, Fábián (Gábor Koncz) comes home to his distraught wife. During the war, the local priest became her lover. The affair is kept hidden from Fabian by his two sons, who avenged his honor by drowning the priest. Baffled by his wife's despair, Fabian also has to cope with the political changes brought about by a failed Revolution.

". . .delicate lyricism, precise photography, sensitive scoring. . .the remarkable performance of Gábor Koncz invests every one of Fábián's uncomprehending stares with a dimension of simple heroism." - Derek Elley, International Film Guide
