film synopsis

In post-World War II Budapest, 16-year-old Holocaust survivor Klára still clings to the belief, against all evidence, that her parents will return. When she meets Aladár, a 42-year-old doctor who lost his wife and children in the death camps, she finds someone to live for, and, in turn, brings newfound meaning to his life. But as the Communist Party and the Soviets take power in Hungary and a new kind of terror takes over, will they be able to continue their pure and loving father-daughter relationship? Commenting after the film’s world premiere, The Wall Street Journal critic Joe Morgenstern noted, “I do love it when, to cite the modest yet magical case of Those Who Remained, whole lives, including ours, can be changed in less than an hour and a half.” Based on the novel by Zsuzsa F. Várkonyi, director Barnabás Tóth has crafted a tender, delicate story of unconventional love in the midst of unimaginable conflict.
