The Red and the White( Visual )

29 editions published between 1968 and 2006 in Hungarian and English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1919, Hungarian Communists aid the Bolsheviks' defeat of Czarists, the Whites. Near the Volga, a monastery and a field hospital are held by one side then the other. Captives are executed or sent running naked into the woods. Neither side has a plan, and characters the camera picks out soon die. A White Cossack officer kills a Hungarian and is executed by his own superiors when he tries to rape a milkmaid. At the hospital, White officers order nurses into the woods, dressed in finery, to waltz. A nurse aids the Reds, then they accuse her of treason for following White orders. Red soldiers walk willingly, singing, into an overwhelming force. War seems chaotic and arbitrary"

14 editions published between 1967 and 2011 in Hungarian and English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commissioned by the USSR as part of its celebration of the 50th anniversary of the October Revolution, but subsequently banned in that country, Jancsó's haunting film is a critique of the evil and absurdities of war. Set in Central Russia during the Civil War of 1918, the story concerns a contingent of Hungarians in the International Brigade of the Red Army who collide with counter-revolutionary White Russian troops in the hills along the Volga. The epic moves from an abandoned monastery to a riverbank hospital to a final hillside massacre. The film is noteworthy for its fluid camera movements which probe the cinematic landscape and the black and white photography which imbues the film with a surreal quality

"Paralleling the dramatic student protests and riots that were exploding across the world in the 1960s when the film was made, The Confrontation is a story of rebellion in Hungary in 1947, after the Communist Party had just taken power. Told in an operatic but supremely naturalistic style with songs of revolution used to punctuate the narrative and shot in long fluid takes, The Confrontation combines a radical aesthetic with radical politics to become a film as revolutionary in form as it is in subject."--Publisher's website
