Budapest Kiseret (4 stars)

  • 21 August 2006

This article is from 2006.

The lone traveller heading for a city he never meant to see, racing for the locomotive he doesn’t know is his, and finding himself on a night train he’d wish he never caught. Fringe veterans Firefly return with a thoughtful production that questions chance, fate, and the reasons for our choices.

Set somewhere during or shortly after WWII, Budapest Kiseret examines the guilt of a nation who stood by in silence while the Romany Gypsies were persecuted before their eyes. As the American man running from a past he cannot face, Jordan Gullikson gives an award worthy performance, injecting a painful realism into this tale of human suffering. (Eddie Thornton)
