During World War II, two nine-year old twin brothers live with their very cruel grandmother. She lives in a remote Hungarian village and makes the two children work very hard for scraps of food and makeshift accommodation. The twins soon learn how to survive in this terrible grown-up world. They become hard, banish their feelings, learn how to freeze, survive on little food, beg, steal and kill – skills they believe they need in their situation. The film is based on the best-seller of the same name by Ágota Kristóf and won the main prize at the Karlovy Vary festival. Screening on 01.10. in attendance of: János Szász (Director), Ulrich Matthes (Cast)
