Editorial Reviews

The first film by master Hungarian director Istvan Szots, MEN ON THE MOUNTAIN tells the story of a woodcutter who moves his family into the mountains for a better life. But, the family cannot escape tragedy, even in the beautiful Alps. When the wife dies under dreadful circumstances, the woodcutter’s life unravels in one misfortune after another. Deviating from the mainstream comedies and melodramas of wartime Hungary, MEN ON THE MOUNTAIN captures the hard life and unique ways of people living in the mountains of Transylvania. The straightforward realism and devotion to the details of daily life made an impression on Italian cinema as the Neorealists emerged, making Szots’s lost classic a significant contribution to world cinema.
