Directed by Ferenc Török (Hungary, 2017, 91 min.). Hungarian with English subtitles. Digital.
Two Orthodox Jewish strangers are spotted at the train station of a small Hungarian village that is in the middle of preparing for a wedding. Who are these men? Have they come to reclaim stolen Jewish property? Shot in breathtaking black and white, 1945 revisits a time of uncertainty and chaos, as Hungary rebuilds itself after the war and seeks to define its relationship with Europe’s surviving Jews.
