The White King movie full length review - Heart-felt film with a touching message

Unlike most movies today which rely on explosions and gunfire to tell a narrative The White King sends a powerful message of hope and a warning for the future.

I read Gyorgy Dragoman's book of the same name and loved it and this film is masterfully adapted to movie format, retaining the feel of adventure and yet the all-seeing presence of a dangerous dystopian state. It must be said, however, there are some moments when the film does not know what it wants to be, Sci-fi? Drama? But it is directed well enough that the movie moves briskly and is enjoyable. The cast all work well together on camera and all put in good performances. The chemistry of Deyn and the boy, Allchurch, was moving and carried the film beautifully. The visuals are amazing and Rene Richter captures the Hungarian landscapes beautifully. The CGI, used sparingly, is good especially in a scene where we look over some futuristic buildings. Some people may complain that we do not see enough of the brutal state but I believe that that is not the point of the film it is about the family and the glimpses of the regime we get are satisfying and remind you of the threat. The final scene is powerful and moving as we see that truly "the hardest thing to break is the human spirit".
