The Last Report on Anna
The Last Report on Anna

The Last Report on Anna is a powerful political drama based on a true story, set in the 1970s. It centres on Anna Kéthly, a minister in the government of Imre Nagy who went into exile following the failure of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution.

A longstanding stalwart who railed against both fascist and communist dictatorships, Kéthly was one of the few politicians to oppose Hungary's discriminatory measures against its Jews. Now, in the evening of her esteemed life and living in Belgium, she is visited by Péter, the nephew of an old lover who had been unable to leave Hungary.

Péter is tasked with persuading her to return home after decades of exile. Unbeknownst to Kéthly, he has been trapped into the employ of the Hungarian secret service, which has its own reasons for wanting her back.
