Director Kornél Mundruczó equals Franz Schubert's "Winterreise" – in the orchestral version by Hans Zender – with the flight of the refugee: “Waiting for one does not know what. For me, the emigrants' Purgatory is like a refugee camp. ( … ) Schubert’s traumatic motifs provided me with a special opportunity to think about man’s eternal alienness. And to ask the question whether art can provide a refuge when the very fundamentals of our life are questioned”
