After his father abandons him, Aron, a young Hungarian boy is sent to a harshly run orphanage where discipline is cruel and conditions are cold and unwelcoming. Despite the cruelty he finds solace in a special relationship with a young classmate Attila. And that sexual awakening gives him the courage to lead his peers in revolt.

This was great!My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
A great many reels of film shot already, the filmmakers must have felt there was a lot more in store. A matter of budget? We don't know. As it is, the deus ex machina had to be conjured up.My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
I have such a hard time figuring out if I see the "real" versions or "Americanized" versions of films, and this one is no different. It was a pretty good film nonetheless, and as many have said, it did have a bit of a weird ending.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
very good movie i agree with the others who have posted about the end.My Movie Rating: 7 / 10
