Attila, the Hun, is a bloody beast that destroyed Europe. Being seen in the West as personified evil, Hungarian nationalists consider Attila the ideal king: a hero who held together a huge empire, an avenger for his people, the scourge of God! And now he is coming back to clarify what is East and what is West, who the real enemy is, and who lives rightly at home, here in Europe! Budapest-based director András Dömötör pushes the nationalist- Hungarian utopia of Attila’s return to the extreme.
