A must-see for anyone interested in Jewish themes, history and great European cinema, the new Hungarian masterpiece “1945” is opening in Boston on Dec. 22. It will run at West Newton Cinema as long as there’s interest, with daily screening times at 1:35, 3:45, 5:50 and 8 p.m.

On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son arrive in a small village in Hungary while the villagers prepare for the wedding of the town clerk’s son. The townspeople—suspicious, remorseful, fearful and cunning—expect the worst and behave accordingly.

A superb ensemble cast, lustrous black-and-white cinematography, and historically detailed art direction contribute to an eloquent drama that reiterates Thomas Wolfe’s famed sentiment: you can’t go home again.
