Shot in cinema verité style, Hungarian director Bela Tarr's drama captures the daily life of ordinary people living in desperate times. Communist-ruled Hungary is undergoing a housing shortage, forcing a seven-member family to share a tiny apartment. As the walls close in, tensions rise: A father chastises his son for not reenlisting, which might have resulted in a larger apartment, and a wife stops at nothing in order to qualify for a new home.
