Towards the end of World War II, a desperate young mother leaves her 13-year-old twin sons at their grandmother's house in the Hungarian countryside, despite the fact that this grandmother is a cruel and bestial alcoholic. Previously pampered, the twins must learn how to survive alone in their new, rural surroundings. They realize that the only way to cope with the absurd and inhumane world of adults and war is to become completely unfeeling and merciless. By learning to free themselves from hunger, pain and emotion, they will be able to endure future hardships.

“Alternately powerful and perplexing.”
-CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR

"The Notebook" is a skillfully made movie, with sequences that may haunt you after you leave the theater.
-A.O SCOTT, NEW YORK TIMES

“An original, a war movie like none you've seen before--about a pair of twin boys who imitate the behavior of the cruel adults they see during the German occupation of Hungary.”
-COMPUSERVE

“This cautionary tale certainly has a chilling and timely message of how wars make monsters out of innocent people.”
-L.A. TIMES
