As vice-president of Hungary's far-right extremist party, Csanad Szegedi espoused anti-Semitic rhetoric and Holocaust denials, and founded the Hungarian Guard, a now-banned militia inspired by a pro-Nazi group complicit in the murder of thousands of Jews during WWII. But his life was soon upended when Szegedi's maternal grandparents were revealed to be Jewish and his beloved grandmother an Auschwitz survivor who had hidden her faith, fearing further persecution. Keep Quiet depicts Szeged's three-year journey to embrace his newfound religion. But is his transformation genuine? Or does he simply have nowhere else to turn?

If this film had been just a great, jolly pat on the back for tolerance, I don't think I wouldn't have liked it nearly this much, but the film showcases Csanád's story along with the deserved and detailed skepticism that it faces from both his old and new communities. The result is a documentary that, like, "The Imposter" before it, thrives on its ambiguity as well as the charisma of its subject. He goes from a frightening, hateful person to someone who is preaching tolerance and begging to be believed, and this film will definitely leave you pondering the nature of such a sea change in political ideology, whether you buy his conversion or not. This is a conversation piece and a very well-made documentary, and it definitely deserves a wider audience.
