"More a portrait of a community's collective guilt and shame than a character drama about a handful of individuals, this adaptation of the short story 'Homecoming' from co-screenwriter Gábor T. Szántó examines how a town really feels about having moved into the homes and started eating off the plates of the Jews that vanished during the war." (The Hollywood Reporter) "This gripping period drama offers a fresh, intelligent cinematic approach to a difficult topic. Key to the impact is the superb lensing of veteran DOP Elemér Ragályi. The opening shot establishes a sustained tone of impending doom, while his beautifully composed images heighten visual interest." (Variety)
