The first impression is that this is another holocaust film, but this film opens a new aspect, because the point of the film is not the evil and stupidity and violence, but it is about a young man, who has to cope with adult life after the evil events.

In his long speech at the end of the film he points out, that what he sees around him in Budapest after he has returned, is the same kind of indifference as before he was taken away. And that it was in the camp, that he learned about self-esteem, about care for each other, about real humanity. Maybe it sounds absurd, but so it is.
