Budapest, Fall 1944, and the Jewish residents of the Hungarian capital helplessly await a tragic fate. However, there is one house in the city that defies the horror.

He never leaves his room up high in a tower, yet every evening his voice can be heard throughout the neighborhood. As long as he sings, all is not lost.

Underground Lowest used price: $9.98
List price: $29.95
Model: 09626447

This sprawling, exhausting, deeply moving Palme d'Or winner represents the pinnacle of Serbian director Emir Kusturica's considerable abilities, and what is easily one of the best cinematic achievements of the 1990s. It encapsulates 50 turbulent years of Yugoslavian history, from the outbreak of World War II in the 1940s to the destruction of this once-great nation in the 1990s. \n When we first meet Marko (Miki Manojlovic) and Blacky (Lazar Ristovski), it's hard to take these jokers seriously. All they want to do is party their lives away. But the Nazi shelling of Belgrade changes everything, and the resourceful duo comes up with an ingenious plan--one will stay aboveground while the other goes underground. The arrangement represents an ideal opportunity for all concerned: Blacky, his wife, and the rest of their friends and neighbors will be protected from the chaos going on above, while Marko and the lovely Natalija (Mira Sorvino look-alike Mirjana Jokovic) will sell the weapons they're making down below. Everyone will share in the profits. \n But Marko commits the ultimate act of betrayal--against Blacky and the rest of his subterranean comrades. This sort of deception can only lead to tragedy, and Kusturica doesn't spare us the details. In fact, it's his eye for detail that makes "Underground" such a memorable experience--the perfect note his cast strikes between the extremes of physical comedy, passionate romance, and mortal pain, the insidiously infectious brass-heavy score and the strikingly colorful images. \n "Underground" is basically a parable, and doesn't always adhere to the laws of physics. It isn't for the literal-minded, the impatient, or the partisan. It's loud, it's long, and it isn't for the easily offended. It may just also be one of the saddest movies ever made and stands as a fitting tribute to a country that exists only in the hearts and minds of its former residents. "--Kathleen C. Fennessy"

The Red and The White

The  Red and The White Lowest used price: $470.22
Brand: Kino Video

Banned for many years in the USSR, Hungarian director Miklos Jancso's masterful The Red and the White is a haunting, powerful film about the absurdity and evil of war. Set in Central Russia during the Civil War of 1918, the story details the murderous entanglements between Russia's Red soldiers and the counter-revolutionary Whites in the hills along the Volga. The epic conflict moves with skillful speed from a deserted monastery to a riverbank hospital to a final, unforgettable hillside massacre. The director of such Hungarian cinema classics as Silence and Cry (1968), My Way Home (1967), Jancso here creates what many believe to be his finest work. The Red and the White is a moving visual feast where very inch of the cinemascope frame is used to magnificent effect. With his brilliant use of exceptionally long takes, vast and unchanging landscapes and Tames Somlo's hypnotic black and white photography, Jancso gives the film the quality of a surreal nightmare. In the director's uncompromising world, people lose all sense of identity and become hopeless pawns in the ultimate game of chance.

The Porcelain Doll Lowest new price: $21.99
Lowest used price: $8.98
List price: $29.95
Brand: MPI

Director Peter Gardos (THE LAST BLUES) interweaves three whimsical fables of Hungarian rural life in this award-winning drama. Adapted Taken from the novel STAR FARM by Hungarian writer Ervin Lazar, the stories focus on life, death, and resurrection. The first involves a gawky but athletic teenager who bests a series of visiting soldiers in various athletic competitions. In the second, a visiting state official promises he can resurrect the dead, prompting the villagers to exhume four bodies with startling results. Finally, an elderly couple outwits the authorities who want them to relocate with a highly unusual trick. Gardos combines a variety of camera tricks and visual techniques to produce a trio of tales with thought-provoking endings reminiscent of O.Henry or Rod Serling. Taking place between the 1930s and 1950s, the tales serve as allegories for the historical events of the 20th century.
