40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE director Lee Aronsohn and producer Fleur Saville will participate in a Q&A at the Music Hall following the 7:20 PM screening on Friday, August 10. Jesse Maltin will moderate.
The premise is simple but compelling: Two strangers get off a train in a small town and nothing is ever the same again. It could be the setup for a classic western, but the town is in rural Hungary, the two men are Orthodox Jews, and the year, as the title indicates, is 1945.
Photographed in luminous black and white and returning to theaters by popular demand, this 2017 Hungarian film is a quietly ferocious piece of work that puts a particular time and place under a microscope, revealing hidden fault lines and differences that have been ineffectually papered over. Simple, powerful, made with conviction and skill, it is set in a world that is gone, the better to deal with issues and difficulties that are not even close to being past.
