Inspired by real events and an actual miscarriage of justice, Strangled revisits notorious incidents in Hungarian history when, shortly after the 1956 uprising and the communist government crackdown, a violent murder was committed in the small provincial town of Martfü. A suspect was arrested and his signed a confession, yet, years later, he proclaimed his innocence while a new series of similar murders occurred. Director Árpád Sopsits weighs into every aspect of this story, depicting a compromised police investigation, political manoeuvring and the grizzly, violent murders. Evocative, eerie and frequently jaw-dropping, Strangled proved a big hit at the Hungarian box office and cleaned up at its national film awards.
