Miklos Jancso

Miklós Jancsó first studied Law at the University of Kolozsvar and later direction at the School of Cinema in Budapest. His fifth film, _Szegénylegények (1965)_, with a script by Gyula Hernádi, made him internationally known. In his following films he developed a personal style of historic analysis, complex camera movements, dance and popular songs, creating his own style for the movies he called « political musical ». This gave him a broad acceptance in the 1960s. In the 1970s he also filmed in Italy, but did not have the success he was used to.
