Jön az öcsém / My brother is coming
Mihály Kertész, HU 1919
Aufgeführt im Zeughaus Kino Berlin am 13.03.2022
"This rare and unusual film has been rediscovered & preserved in some out-of-the-way museums, like the Suomen Elokuva-Arkisto (Finnish Film Archive) in Helsinki, Finland. "Jon az Ocsem" ("John the Younger Brother") is particularly unusual because it's a staunchly pro-Communist, pro-Russian film directed by a man (Kertesz) who later became a very rich and famous capitalist producer-director in Hollywood ("Mike Curtiz"). "Jon az Ocsem" may be Curtiz's oldest film that has been preserved, out of dozens of his other early Hungarian and Austrian films which seem to be lost forever."
