Back in 1865, two hungarians meet in the Civil War. The two men represent two different stories. One story is based on Ambrose Bierce's novel “George Thruston”, the other is on the Hungarian War of Independence in 1848. Bódy's talent create a beautiful of picture of a true friendship of two completely different persons in the middle of changes.


Gábor Bódy (1946-1985) was a Hungarian film director, screenwriter, theoretic, and occasional actor. A pioneer of experimental filmmaking and film language, Bódy is one of the most important figures of the history of Hungarian cinema.
