Old and new fighting and living together
8 October 2003 | by (Magyarország) – See all my reviews

A marvelous representation of the duality of Hungarian spirit: respecting traditions and making innovations. The fight between the love of freedom and the need of adaptation to a new environment for security are expressed with music and dance. Koppány hangs on to the ancient roots, and freedom, István wants freedom by reforms and integration to the early Medieval Europe of Christian values. Their fight is not about lust for power but the responsibility for the future of the nation. All this with the rock music of Koppány and the more melodic tunes of István give an experience I still can recall, though I have seen the movie premiere 20 years ago.
