1945 Movie - The GBY

Guilt, greed, betrayal and jealousy can lead us to life changing actions.  These actions can be even more devastating when they are facilitated by evil.  1945 is about a small Hungarian town that has been keeping their terrible secrets just under the surface of their happy existence.  The villagers are consumed by their guilt that manifests in different ways.  The black & white cinematography gives the film a stark and timeless quality.  The clopping of the horses, gnats’ buzzing and minimalistic score maintain the ominous atmosphere.  I am wondering what their plan was with the pitchforks.  We enjoyed this movie.   This is a very thought provoking movie.  It’s is not getting any publicity, so look for it at your local art house theater.
