Leo van Hee recommends Miklós Jancsó's The Round Up
Leo van Hee is programmer of the series Restored & Unseen, Dutch classics and retrospectives of Billy Wilder and Andrej Tarkovski, among others. Always looking for films that are about to disappear under the radar of film history, Leo came across the website of the Hungarian Film Institute, where you can watch a nice selection of Hungarian film classics for free.
Among others, he discovered The Round Up (1965), by Miklós Jancsó, the figurehead of Hungarian cinema in the 1960s and 1970s. Compatriot Béla Tarr is a big fan of Jancsó and The Round Up is one of his favourite films. Discover why.
