Set in 1919, during the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, Miklos Jancso's The Red and the White is a war film unlike any other.
In the brutal Civil War which took place, Hungarian volunteers supported the 'Red' revolutionaries in a war against the 'White' counter-revolutionaries who were seeking to restore the old Czarist order. through its stylistic virtuosity, ritualistic power and sheer beauty, Jancso invites us to study the mechanisms of power almost abstractly and with a cold eroticism that clearly portrays the utter futility of war. Although the film was an Hungarian-Russian co-production, the Russian authorities banned it from being shown anywhere in the Soviet Union.

Miklos Jansco is arguably the key Hungarian filmmaker of the sound era and The Red and the White will be the first in a series of his films that Second Run DVD will be releasing.
