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.

I am very sorry I put off watching this masterpiece for so long; but thankful that I did today. It is 3 hrs long, so make sure you have the time to watch this, but no matter what you do, find the time to watch it soon - for the lessons taught within the confines of this film are lifelong lessons we all need to experience and learn. The movie is history, and teaches a lot of hungarian history, which is particularly interesting to me as my grandparents immigrated from Hungary thru Ellis Island in 1910. There is also a lot of Hungarian Jewish history told within the story, and everything woven together presents the viewer with the most beautiful and sorrowful tapestry of what people can and will do in certain situations. The acting is superior, the directing is some of the best I have seen, and the storyline - well it is history - truth - very well written. 5/5 from me - note: some scenes are not suitable for wee ones...remember, this is during war and peace times, and some of the war and prision scenes and sexual scenes are not suitable for kiddos.

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.

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!

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.

Brilliant work from a director very controversial for his political standings(compromises??)during the obscure times of Soviet ruling....but Oscar winner for the amazing Mephisto and various other well deserved wins and nominations...this is an epic movie dealing with antisemitism,political changes,suffering,adaptations and survival of an entire race...definitely a must watch....great cast,9/10.

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.

I grew up in Hungary and I am part Jewish.There was some hatred against Jews but it wasn't as extreme as it shows it in this movie.My great Grand father(Whose Mother was 100% Jewish)was an Officer in the Austro-Hungarian Light Hussar Brigade in WW.1.and there was no problem him being Jewish.World W 2 was different the Germans were occupying Hungary and they were deporting the Jews but the top richest people were still Jewish and they were in control both Germany and Hungary only the poor and middle class Jews were taken to the camps!!!
