A TEMETETLEN HALOTTTHE UNBURIED MAN
Imre Nagy led Hungary's 1956 revolution and was executed after its defeat. His name remained taboo for some 30 years, his political activity the subject of controversy and heated debate – up until his complete personal rehabilitation and that of his political legacy. THE UNBURIED MAN was among the first gestures to pay tribute to him and grant him a public “appearance”.
The film, however, is not set in the tumultuous days of the revolution but instead depicts the last period of Nagy’s life, from his time inside his refuge at the Yugoslav Embassy up to his secret execution, in what proves to be a singularly intimate encounter with a key personality of 20th-century European history.
