Plot Summary
Amidst the shadows and secrets of Communist Hungary, one family's desperate escape plan goes terribly wrong. By dark of night, the family attempts a daring getaway, sneaking over the heavily armed border, but at an unthinkable price - their infant daughter is mistakenly left behind. From a new writer/director who lived through the astonishing events depicted in this film, comes a highly personal odyssey of a fierce young woman's bitter exile and hard-won redemption.

    They don't get more frustrating than American Rhapsody, a near-great film for about an hour that changes into a self-indulgent mess. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Heartfelt but often plodding and awkward, the movie feels like a somewhat subpar Sunday night TV movie. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Nastassja Kinski, in one of her most affecting performances, does much to convey the turmoil going in her soul. show more
