Cannes 2015: ‘Saul Fia’ is a Hungarian newcomer’s Tour de Force

After a kick-off day with some alright films, variously peddling frivolous contrivance or social awareness rehash, Saul Fia (Son of Saul), the third film in the official competition, finally delivers an overdose of the goosebumps absent so far.
