Apa - The Father DVD

| DVD

A young Hungarian boy concocts a fantasy ideal of his father who has been killed in the Second World War. In the child's imagination the figure of the father attains mythical qualities. Only years later does the boy realise that his father may not have been the heroic figure he imagined him to be... Combining a poetic nostalgia with stark images of war Szab's powerful cinematic ode relates historical events through the prism of personal experience producing a film of extraordinary intimacy and power. From the Oscar-winning director of Mephisto Colonel Redl and Being Julia.

Hungarian filmmaker Istvan Szabo writes and directs this coming-of-age drama. As a boy, Tako (Andras Balint) always convinced himself that his father, a doctor who was killed in World War II, died a hero's death fighting the Nazis. As he grows into a man, Tako determines to find out the truth about what happened to his father, and realises that there is no such thing as pure good or pure evil, only ordinary people trying to do their best in a difficult world.
