Event Details

This stunningly shot tale follows the adventures of 13-year-old twin brothers whose mother sends them to the Hungarian countryside towards the end of World War II. Once pampered, they must discipline themselves to be tough and emotionless to survive. They write everything down in a notebook, keeping a written record of all they have witnessed during the war and following their own strict code: prose free from emotion, notes precise and objective. Yet over time they are initiated into the horrors of a war‐torn world, and, after brief post-war visits from each parent, must face their own ultimate separation. Selected as Hungary’s entry for the 2013 Academy Awards. This film is in Hungarian with English subtitles. Rated R. Light refreshments provided by our Friends of the Library.
