Sunshine: The film follows a Jewish family living in Hungary through three generations, rising from humble beginnings to positions of wealth and power in the crumbling Austro-Hungarian Empire. The patriarch becomes a prominent judge but is torn when his government sanctions anti-Jewish persecutions. His son converts to Christianity to advance his career as a champion fencer and Olympic hero, but is caught up in the Holocaust. Finally, the grandson, after surviving war, revolution, loss and betrayal, realizes that his ultimate allegiance must be to himself and his heritage.

Brilliant and very powerful film. Pulled and tore my heart out at times, but a joy to watch. I even felt gratitude to my ancestors. Must see, it is a long film.

This movie really should be a must watch for anyone interested in the historicity of the Jewish condition, especially in regard to assimilation and antisemitism. It is not as poignant, evocative, or concentric as a film like Shindler's List, but speaks volumes nonetheless. The history, of course, is peripheral to a really well told story, though, so it is a great film if you love drama. There is some gratuitous nudity early on, and mature sexual content through, so do be aware of that. And one other FYI: It is 3 hrs long (I didn't even realize it until I was already into it, and by then I was hooked--so make sure you have the time). 8/10.

Good film and very engaging. A "sit down and relax on the weekend" kind of film. Lots of historical detail about one family through the generations. Very intense content and "real life like". It is a long film so make sure you are up for it. It will keep you interested the whole way through. 3.5/5.

An absolutely wonderful film. So thought provoking and beautifully scripted and filmed. One to watch again and again, with a glass of wine.

I love how this movie illuminates the personal relationships behind political maneuvers. Unlike so many similar films, the characters here are allowed to make genuine mistakes...like the rest of us :) A lot of great performances--too many to list. Watch it!

It is a forceful and wonderful film that follows four generations of a Jewish Hungarian family through seventy tumultuous years of Hungarian history. The story is extremely well done with rich finely etched characters. It is undoubtedly the best historical portrait of Europe from the late 19th-mid 20th century. It does an excellent job of showing the emotions and realities of the progressions of Europe during this time. Since it is in Hungary, we are exposed to monarchy, fascism, and communism, all of which are portrayed vividly.

A good film, well made. Think tried to fit too much into the film and lost something in doing so.

To paraphrase: Politicians lie to the people. But worse, the people lie to politicians and tell them that they believe them. So much in this film that could be of use to so many today.
