Directed by Marta Meszaros
Three classic Hungarian dramas. Marta Meszaros directs 'Diary for My Children' (1984) in which orphaned teenager Juli (Zsuzsa Czinkoczi) and her grandparents return from exile in Russia to Budapest after World War II.
Unfortunately Juli's hopes of happiness in her homeland are gradually eroded by the strictures of a disciplinarian society.
Miklos Jancso's 'My Way Home' (1964) is a starkly atmospheric tale of friendship in the final days of World War II.
Joska (Andras Kozak) is a young Hungarian making his way home, through countryside full of the debris of war, when he is captured and imprisoned by Russians.
Left in the custody of a young Russian soldier, Kolya (Sergei Nikonenko), the two youths form a friendship in spite of not speaking each other's language. 'Love' (1971), directed by Karoly Makk, tells the story of a young woman whose husband has been arrested by the secret police.
Unable to tell his ailing mother the truth about his imprisonment, the woman weaves a fantastic story that her son is in America, where he has become a successful film director.
