The Corporal and the Others

Hungarian black and white comedy, 1965, directed by Márton Keleti – Bonus features with Imre Sinkovits and newsreels from the period.

In Hungary, a country subject to the „draughts of history”, in 1945, as a matter of course, deserters combine to make up a little partisan detachment, headed by a cunning corporal. The little man of Eastern Europe tries to survive both, the Hungarian and the German Nazis, by undergoing countless perils, and he is not too much surprised when faced by a Russian soldier with a machine-gun from behind the fruit jars.
