No True Density: Szabo’s “Sunshine”

The Istvan Szabo film, Sunshine (2000), gives us a Jewish family in Hungary as it encounters historical events of the 20th century.  This, however, is designer history meant to point up anti-Semitic politics and policy; history’s true density is missing.  Small wonder that the characters succeed more as types than as human beings, albeit there are exceptions—e.g. Adam Sors, one of the three men played by Ralph Fiennes.  

Adam is of limited interest, though, when he didn’t have to be.  Of course he falls in love since falling-in-love is one of the very few values this movie upholds.  Belief in God, on the other hand, it doesn’t know what to do with.
