Classic and one of the most quoted movie in Hungary
2 February 2005 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Régi idök focija (Old times' football) is probably the most quoted movie in Hungary besides A Tanú (The Witness). 'Kell egy csapat!' (We need a team) became a common proverb in Hungary. The story takes place in the 1920's in Budapest, and tells a story about Ede Minarik, the laundry man, who is keen to sacrifice his life, wealth, even his family life to make up his own football team, which can make it to the first division. But the film is about more than just football: it shows us the post-war Budapest, the dirt, the slums, the poverty, and a man, who has a dream, a vision to achieve his own set goals with his team. At that time there was a desperate need for lots of people like Minarik. What is unique about the movie is how it was pictured: the cameraman created an atmosphere which takes us back to the 1920's. Definitely worth watching it!
