“Those who have never seen a film by Miklós Jancsó from the 1960s, when this Hungarian director was at his peak, are usually astonished by the experience”
Derek Malcolm, The Guardian
Jancsó’s first film in colour is a virtuoso display by one of cinema’s greatest artists. It eloquently explores the complex issues and inherent problems of revolutionary democracy and asks the question: what happens after the revolution is won?
Paralleling the dramatic student protests and riots that were exploding across the world in the 1960s when the film was made, The Confrontation is a story of rebellion in Hungary 1947 after the Communist Party had just taken power. Told in an operatic but supremely naturalistic style with songs of revolution used to punctuate the narrative and shot in long fluid takes, The Confrontation combines a radical aesthetic with radical politics to become a film as revolutionary in form as it is in subject.
The DVD features the film presented for the first time on DVD in a brand new anamorphic 16:9 digital transfer with restored image and sound, approved by the director and a 16-page booklet featuring an expansive essay by author Graham Petrie.To enter just send an email with CONFRONTATION in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org including your name, address and telephone number.
