Shot in stark black and white and set on the Great Plain of Hungary, where the only, eerie sounds are those of birds, Miklos Jancso’s somber and brilliant film reveals a little-known prequel to the Nazi Holocaust. Hungarian resistance fighters against the newly created Austro-Hungarian empire have been rounded up in holding pens where informing is common and death casual. Some sequences, such as prisoners’ hurling themselves from a rooftop to their deaths, are unforgettable. The Round Up’s original wide-screen images have been letterboxed here but — both unfortunately and mysteriously — only partially, turning a film that would have been graded an A into one deserving a B.
