Égi bárány (1971) AKA Agnus Dei / Heavenly Lamb


Alegory of the suppression of the 1919 revolution and the advent of fascism in Hungary; in the countryside, a unit of the revolutionary army spares the life of father Vargha, a fanatical priest. He comes back and leads massacres. A new force, represented by Feher, apparently avenges the people, but only to impose a different, more refined and effective kind of repression.

    Once again, Jon you da fuckin man! From the limited amount of his work I’ve seen, I love Jansco. Is this the only film of his here? They seem very hard to find unless you have Criteron.
