The Hungarians is a tale of peasants who are talked into leaving their Hungarian village to work on a large German farm for a year near the end of World War II. While there they are uncomprehending witnesses to a number of despicable acts performed by the German army and civilians. It is hard to get overly involved with the characters or incidents of this movie. There are so many characters and the story takes place over such a large period of time, that I didn't feel like I really got to know anyone in the movie. A number of terrible things happen to people but it is all so elliptical and removed that it was hard to get emotionally involved. Not a bad movie but neither is it particularly compelling.
