‘Escape to Budín – the third film, based on the novel by Vladislav Vančura of the same title, was shot in a specific way; as if its director Miloslav Luther was painting a historical image of passions, failures, and disappointments of the movie characters who experienced their dramatic life moments in Prague, Slovakia, Budapest and Vienna. All set against the backdrop of far-reaching social, economic and political changes, following the dissolution of the Austro–Hungarian Empire.
