Director: István SzabÃ³
"In 1966 he made Father about a boy's search for his dead father. A warm, tolerant humour is immediately visible in this film which developed into a gentle irony over Szabo's next ten years (a humour hard to read between the subtitles) ... The psychological detail of Tako's obsessive search doesn't stop at the personal history of one boy's need. Szabo commented on the subject: 'After the war, many fathers were dead - not just one little boy sought out a father. Whole nations, countries, people created fathers, if they didn't have strong leaders. Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt - people make fathers out of their leaders or vice-versa.'"
