Movie: An American Rhapsody


cover

It’s too bad this movie goes overboard with the melodrama, because it’s a worthy story. I’m glad to have watched it, mostly because it helps bring home the fact that racial killings, nationalization (or state-sponsored theft) of private property, and closed borders have been (and are) realities in other countries that destroy people and thier families, not just abstract ideas. The country in this case is Stalinist Hungary, and there are some good historical sequences and scenes of Budapest to take in.
