  • Set during the final stretch of World War II, My Way Home was described by director Miklós Jancsó as "autobiographical in feeling, if not in fact". It documents the random brutality of war and the lyrical beauty of work and friendship through a series of psychologically intense yet poetic and dream-like encounters set against a vast indifferent landscape.

    The film was Jancsó’s first collaboration with screenwriter Gyula Hernádi and stars András Kozák (The Red and the White).
