While the guns of the Grand Battery thundered in the centre, French columns bore down on the Hougoumont chateau and farm complex, which protected Wellington's flank held by the Guards and their German allies.

Jews and Jewish themes are one of the most overlooked themes in Miklós Jancsó's body of work. He was not a Jew himself but was fascinated by their culture and struggle. He even made this three part documentary about their culture in three various territories in Hungary (he had now planed to create 5 movies but for a reason unknown to me, ended with only three). The first one, this one here, is about Jews in Budapest, the 2nd one is about Jews in Máramaros and the third one about Jews in Hegyalja.This and the 2nd one are almost without a dialog. All of the documentaries are rather aimless and Jancsó has too much respect for his topics to dare do something interesting or present us anything out of the ordinary. It feels like a polite confirmation video of family and friends. Not among Miklós Jancsó's best.
