Those Who Remained

This critically-acclaimed Hungarian film about the tragedy of self-sacrifice and the importance of selflessness in the wake of trauma will be shown in multiple US markets, beginning in FLORIDA!

Check out this recent interview with the film’s director on WPBF, an ABC affiliate in Florida!

Those Who Remained, directed by Barnabás Tóth, tells of 42-year-old doctor and Holocaust survivor Aldó as his quiet, solitary life is interrupted by scornful, 16-year-old orphan Klára. Over the course of the film, these two find something in each other that has been absent in their lives in the aftermath of the Holocaust and develop a close-knit father-daughter relationship that must overcome past traumas, social stigmas, and the rising powers of the Soviet Union. Those Who Remained offers new perspectives on not only Holocaust survivors, but survivors of any major trauma–be it physical or emotional– and emphasizes the importance of finding a new normal in the shadows of grief and loss. This film is in Hungarian with English subtitles. 

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT:  For me, this film is, first of all, a hymn, an ode to a man who is totally wrecked but pulls himself together for one last time to save another half-destroyed soul.  We’ve seen so many films about what happened before and during the Holocaust, but so few have shown us the fate of those who remained with us, those who came back. – Barnabás Tóth, director

“A revelation! Perceptively directed by Barnabás Tóth, this exquisite, poignantly performed tale taps into a deep well of honestly earned emotion.” – Alissa Simon, Variety

“Terrific! A finely-tuned post-Holocaust tale that is quite compelling. Made and acted with unemphatic precision, this marks Tóth as a talent to watch.” – Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter

“Remarkable! A film suffused with sensitivity and humanity, demonstrating a talent for elegant and classical direction which turns its back on the ostentatious and the overly dramatic, favouring instead the subtle and positive variations of the dance of life. – Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa

“SEE IT! Those Who Remained is an intimate look at two damaged souls who are now ready to begin the reconstruction of their life. Abigél Szõke (brings) the film to life with her tremendously affecting performance.” – Howard Schumann, Critical Movie Critics
