A Legend. Best wartime-comedy (and best Hungarian movie) ever!
22 April 2007 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

This is a legendary movie in Hungary, maybe the best and most famous movie ever made here. It is a wartime comedy set in the chaotic times of WWII, 1945. The German are escaping, falling back from Hungary, and the Russian are coming in with great numbers. The "little heroes" of the movie are different people, mostly escaped soldiers, whose only goal is to survive the war - and possibly not without any money. But there are a lot of powers in the chaos of the war in Hungary: the escaping German army, who don't care anything about Hungarian losses; the Hungarian army, for whom these people are fugitives and have to be condemned to death; the special Hungarian fascist forces (called "nyilas" because the Hungarian fascist leader was called Nyilasi); and of course the Soviet army, who they didn't know a lot about because of the propaganda. This movie, despite the many historical informations and interesting facts, is a real European kind of wartime comedy, a bit sad, a bit bitter, but utterly funny and exciting. The movie tells about the hopes and adventures of single ordinary men in the war who are brave and witty but do not want to fight. It reminds the viewer to Svejk, the famous Czech book, and Where eagles dare, the spy-story, because there is a lot of pretending here as well, the heroes trying to act like a Communist when they meet the Soviet force, and trying to act like a real Fasicts among the German and so on. The movie is interesting because the historical set, and even more interesting, knowing that it was made during the Socialism in Hungary, when Sovietunio was not really to criticize. So the German are made more fun of, but there are lots of jokes with the Russian as well!

And a little info for those who are interested: when Hitler came into Hungary with his army to make sure that every command of his will be done even when he was losing the battles and it was not so shiny to be with German in the war anymore, in the occupied countries little political armed forces were formed of only real Fascist people. In Hungary, they were called "nyilas". These people are easy to spot (in the movie) because they wear ed arm-bands with a four-headed arrow. (For example the fat man with the mustache who is collecting young people from a village in the movie.) The mad politician Hitler put "in charge" in Hungary after he came in with force was called Szálasi. Here you can find a pi cs about Szálasi and another about that armband: http://www.holokausztmagyarorszagon.hu/index.php?section=2&type=pi cs&chapter=7_1_4 A wartime-comedy-adventure gem with very-very clever and a little sad and ironic humor. And the main actor called Sinkovics Imre is also brilliant (best Hungarian actor ever IMHO!!!).
