According to screenwriter Norbert Copley, Blokád is an incredible but true story – about a divided nation and its unifying leader, who must confront the worst enemy of his life thus far: cancer.
Director Adam Tosser admits:

The film is the first to show the circumstances of regime change, when Josef Antal finds himself facing the toughest test of his life just six months after his inauguration. Taxi drivers demonstrating in the streets against the huge increase in petrol prices, disillusioned with democracy, besieged the city of Budapest and then the whole country. The opposition stands by them and calls for a revolution. The President of the Republic, the press, and the public mood sympathize with them, and the unpopular government is left alone by unpopular measures. Josef Antal, a former revolutionary in 56, suddenly found himself on the other side of the barricade. Left alone, she is newly operated on in the ward.

The blockade is not just a chronicle of the four days of the taxi blockade: it also gives a glimpse into the struggles, the behind-the-scenes deals and the personal life of the prime minister who dealt with the crisis and fought for democracy. In the film, Mikhail Gorbachev and Helmut Kohl appear among the dominant politicians of the era.

Blokád is particularly notable because it is the first film to present the conditions of regime change and the Prime Minister of Hungary’s first democratically elected government, Josef Antal, on both a political and personal level.

– confirmed producer Tamas Lagos.
