A very fine summary of the problems of young intellectuals in the socialist Hungary
14 February 2004 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

This film shows a very vivid, some times comic, some times sad picture about young Hungarian intellectuals in the socialist Hungary. Especially important that it was made in 1978, only eleven years before the end of socialist period when party guidelines were not so severe. Therefore the film expresses a rather strong criticism about conditions, way of life etc. For example a friendly company of young people nearly expels their friend who just entered the communist party... At the same time it is very amusing, full of good humour. It is the best film of the talented Hungarian movie director, Rezsõ Szörény who died rather young. Strongly recommended.
