Known as the best satire about communism, banned for over a decade in Hungary. 'The Witness' has become a cult classic, well received by critics and general audiences when it was finally released outside of Hungary. 'The Witness' takes place during the height of the Rákosi Era, which was closely modeled after the ruthless and brutal Stalin regime. The film follows the life of an ordinary dike keeper, József Pelikán, who has been caught for illegally slaughtering his pig, Dezsõ. Instead of doing hard time for his "heinous" crime, Pelikán is elevated into an important position, generally reserved for the communist elite. His new benefactor, the mysterious Comrade Virág, is reluctant to reveal the real reason behind Pelikán's preferential treatment. Thus, begins Pelikán's hilarious adventure deep within the "sophisticated" communist society... Until one day, when he gets called for to return the "favour" by falsely testifying against his long-time friend in a mock-up show trial.

Shreyas Talpade fits in perfectly, shweta prasad(his sister) gives a superb performance and Naseeruddin shah is God in this movie!

They feel they have to pay out on others to make themselves feel good about themselves. Losers!"Reach Me" is a very enjoyable, interesting and touching film. I have been a huge fan of John Herzfeld's work for 30 years. His body of work is amazing and diverse. John's work has launched the careers of a bunch off huge stars. Stallone said, working with John was one of the highlights of his career. You don't get an all star cast like there are in "Reach me" if it wasn't a quality film.Watch this film for yourself, and afterwards you will make the decision to never read another critics review ever again. Personally, I'm disgusted by their lack of ethics and professionalism. John, Congratulations and keep on doing what you do so great, writing and directing quality films.
